Why Am I Not Surprised

For day after day it has been hotter and drier than our much-longed-for Monsoon season has any right to be, with nights so clear it looks like someone important thinned the air. But then, just as the Perseid meteor shower is supposed to begin, perhaps even more impressive than usual, the skies turn cloudy. It's so overcast right now you could persuade me it's a wintertime Portland sky if I didn't know better. Not only that, we didn't get a drop of rain as compensation for the cancelled spectacle.
