They Call It Stormy Monday
...but Tuesday's twice as bad

Rain and more rain, all day and half of yesterday. Soft and misty, or clicking against the windows in counterpoint to my rapidfire keyboard hunt-and-peck. The humid air infiltrates my clothes and hair, dampening spirits through the skin. The sheets are wet before we get in them. Here and now, in the basement control room, the speakers crackle and throb moistly, and the lights of the board fade in a waterlogged haze.

Thank god for the lightness of radio in the midst of downpour and darkness. As always, here's the music.
