My madeleine? Thunderstorms

This has felt like summer, for the first time in recent memory. Why? The last few days, we’ve had high humidity and thunderstorms. Bam. Takes me right back to Newport News or even DC. Mowing the lawn Saturday morning was a real Proustian moment: cloudless sky but with steadily climbing temps and thickening air. By the time I was done I felt like I was swimming in the air, it was so humid. And instantly I was back home, trying to rush to finish the lawn before the skies opened. Then there’s that rush of cool air against the skin right before the rain comes in.
