    Al of Rancho Santa Clara wrote: Forget the old "April showers bring May flowers" ditty. In San Miguel that seasonal sequence is backward; summer heat comes early in the year, anywhere from March through May, and the springtime showers, and the flip-of-a-switch greening of the landscape and burst of wildflowers, don't arrive until late June.

    This year the rains started in late May, several weeks early, with a couple of torrential storms, and at the same time, the relaxation of many restrictions that have choked social and commercial life here for the past fourteen or fifteen months as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Additionally, yesterday FĂ©lix noted that the annual invasion of grasshoppers hasn't started, perhaps disrupted by the changes in the seasonal cycle. May the disruption be permanent and those destructive critters never come back.

    Though I fear declaring victory too soon, the pandemic seems to be winding down, after two vaccination campaigns followed by a communal sigh of relief. ...
