So what if the Dow is down 360 points today and oil is at a new high? As I was just saying to a friend in email, when you’ve relocalized, and having a decent supper depends on it, nothing is more thrilling than a good downpour of unforecast, unexpected rain. I’m joking. But it’s still thrilling. And actually there are beautiful showers all across the South right now. This probably means that neither the Bermuda High nor La Niña is exerting an evil influence on us right now.
