Haiku for the week

Not cool, but cooler;
After heat that weighs like lead,
Refreshing contrast.

I didn't quite understand all the whingeing about the "heatwave" here in America last week. Where I am, the temperature did not, I think, quite make it (not often, anyway) into the scarily advertised 100+ Fahrenheit range. And, apart from last Saturday, there was never very much humidity; so, even scorching sun felt quite tolerable to me. It's the stickiness, not the UV burn, that gets me down. 

The change is a powerful thing, though. Now that it's back to low 80s and high 70s (still HOT for an English summer!), one considers the possible need for a pullover.
