The Weather In St. Louis

.
2012-06-09 Pagan Picnic 12 (The Weather In St. Louis)

That's what it feels like around here, day after day after day. We were offered tickets to the Cardinals game this afternoon against the arch-rival (no pun intended) Chicago Cubs, but who wants to sit in a stupor watching players in a stupor when the temperature is 101F/38C? There have been a few very small, isolated thunderstorms but we haven't had any significant rain in three months. By contrast, the high temperature today will be 77F/25C in the town in Maine I'm heading for. Can't wait.

This mask was for sale at the Pagan Picnic. I don't know why you'd wear it unless you got a part in The Rite of Spring or were playing The Rolling Stones' Their Satanic Majesties Request really loud. Actually, if you played either one really loud you would tick off one set of neighbors or the other.

I just read an article in my morning paper about the weather situation in the US. We are having the opposite problem, rain records set most every day. I think you should have tried the mask Bob.

My brother and I sat in the bleachers at Fenway, back a few years, in 101 temps. We had to take our shirts off, get sprayed from the bullpen pitchers and drink loads of suds. Still didn't help. EVERYTHING stuck!

This mask would be appropriate here, too, though today it's a bit cooler...

I do sympathize Bob, I know exactly what that feels like, we have the same thing in summer here in Perth, until you experience it it's hard to really understand. p.s. I kind of like the mask, but it's cool here at the mo so it doesn't have the same cogitations..have a blast in Maine, say g'day to Birdman for me!!

It's baking in a lot of places!

I'm surprised that they still have games in summer. Shouldn't the season stop and start again in fall?
