Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Welcome to summer

This year it's a bit cooler than I like. And we had scattered rainstorms, so the party was inside. Then the heat pump blower quit (on a Saturday), I built a fire in the firepace (fire GOOD grunts Neo).

Starwell - Solar Festival

I do use some Yule traditions. This year I have family obligations which will cut those short a bit. But greeting the dawn all three days is definitely one I keep.

Just like clockwork

It's true! It's true! The crown has made it clear.
The climate must be perfect all the year.

A law was made a distant moon ago here:
July and August cannot be too hot.
And there's a legal limit to the snow here
In Camelot.
The winter is forbidden till December
And exits March the second on the dot.
By order, summer lingers through September
In Camelot.
