I know. It's really hot out. There are storms brewing somewhere in the Atlantic and the Gulf. And now the weather blogger is taking a powder. Bad timing.
But this last break of the season was planned long ago, and my favorite teacher would come after me with a ruler if I didn't take the time.
So I'll be off the WeatherDeck for a few days, trying to keep cool. I've left a few items for the weekend papers.

Now, you may talk amongst yourselves. Someone will be checking for comments and posting them. I'm outa here.
