8 June 24, 2021 OPINIONS Your The opinion page does not reflect the views of the KyNewsGroup. i By. Cecil Lawson Mother Nature can’t seem to make up her mind this year about spring and summer. Just when you think the temperatures are going to start rising, another “cold snap” moves in, forcing us to turn up the thermostats and to keep our flannel shirts and winter blankets handy. It was close to 90 and hu- mid last week, and Tues- day night, it was in the 50s again. Spring officially arrived three months ago this week, and yes, there have been some warmer days in there, but just when you think the chill won’t return until this fall — think again. The summer solstice was Sunday, but you wouldn’t QUIET COOL have known that this week. Except for not being able to calculate the amount of fire wood I’ve needed for the past few years because of the fingering chill into spring, I’ve rather enjoyed these cold snaps. I got home the Tuesday night just before midnight, and it felt like the end to a perfect fall day, low humid- ity and clear skies. The full moon was on full display, and to the east, I could even make out the planet Jupiter as a bright spot in the sky (and its neighbors Saturn and dis- tant Pluto would have been visible with a telescope). Along the way a gentle fog was hovering over the Indian Creek valley. There wasn’t a soul out on the road but me, so I just ambled along, enjoying the landscape about me. The silent woods and hills basked under the moon’s gentle glow. A Iovesick mockingbird sang wildly in a tree as I arrived home. Rolls of hay recent- ly cut stood watch over the back field, and I could hear the not-so—distant hum of cars on the interstate. I found myself standing in the middle of driveway as I made my way to the house, marveling at the quiet beauty of it all. There was nothing to be added the experience, nothing to be taken away. I cracked open my bed- room window and laid down and got under the covers. A nice gentle chill filled the room as I enjoyed a few pages of book before turning the lights out. It’s been good sleeping weath- er. I know the heat and hu- midity will return. We Will all sweat again, and get sunburned, and find ticks crawling on us, and get poi- son ivy and chigger bites. The grass will grow, and there will be fleets of lawn- mowers racing over yards in the afternoons. But just for a few min- utes, while the cool lingers, take a minute to enjoy that, too.
