The Summer that Never Ends

15 Kislev 5771

It's ten days to Hanukah and I'm still wearing my summer clothes; still running the fans at home and the a/c at work. No need even for a sweater at night. The sun is still bearing down and there's not a cloud in the sky!

By this time, it should be feeling more like autumn---a little nippy. Usually the windows frost up in the heat of the Hanukah candles' flames.

I feel like a brown, shriveled, potted plant.

HASHEM, please send us the winter rains already!!!
