A very particular weather request
Not to be a crumb bum, but this is my wish: that the sun, which has hardly visited Western Washington since mid May, will continue to stay away tomorrow. I want a nice, heavy deluge (like today's, which is almost heavy enough to wash away roads) for the fourth of July. I wish it upon the entire nation, the better for to sooth the overheated masses, to quell Colorado's raging forest fires, and to dampen the excitement of explosive-armed Fourth of July celebrants. When the danger of National Blow Things Up and Terrify the Pets Day has passed, I propose that we all enjoy at least two weeks of lovely weather (shall we say seventy degrees and sunny?) to celebrate.
