Everyman republished Chaucer in about 1985, and the first line was: -
Whan that Aprill[sic] with his shoures soote
I wrote them a snotty letter telling them if they couldn't get the metre right in line 1, then what other horrors were lurking in the book? I never bought it, but perhaps I was being churlish and should have.
Aprille makes it a nice iambic pentameter, but I gather Chaucer didn't necessarily write in such a neat metre?

Sunny but cool first of May (13°C)
Actually much warmer than yesterday, which was bitingly cold!

Partly cloudy, 61F or 16C. Very nice. Not looking forward to a heatwave. I live downstairs thankfully so it does stay cool. :casque: :bye:

95F with smoke blocking out the sun. An eerie orange haze is predominant. Massive wildfires in Northern CA. I live about 75 miles away and all the smoke is high up in the atmosphere there with light ash covering everything. I work 25 miles from the fires and we must use N95 masks as the smoke is palpable. Lungs burning, eyes burning/tearing. We leave work smelling like a campfire. At least I drive 50 miles south after work to cleaner air...

It's horrible. We think years are being drained from our life spans as if we have been smokers for 30 years. Global warming has set the stage for catastrophe based upon decades of forest mismanagement by idiots. Those idiots create a policy of aggressively putting out ALL fires. They also allow developers to build in fire zones with lax fire prevention regulations. The result is massive quantities of fuel dried by desiccating winds. Once ignited, much of the strategy involves "let it burn", which is what should have been done to begin with when the quantity of fuel was significantly smaller.

All that building in the fire zones? Huge profits for developers and politicians. 8400 structures destroyed so far and 44 human deaths.

This is the start of the fire season...

Here's a good site with suggestions as to how you can minimize the damage to your lungs. Good luck. http://www.gov.mb.ca/health/publichealt ... smoke.html

Very smokey! There's a huge wildfire about 38 miles away, but it's severe enough to fill the sky around me with smoke and partially obscure the sun. The upside is that it isn't as terribly hot as it has been!

I am so sorry about the fires in CA. I was feeling sorry for myself because it is July 4 th and too hot (90 degrees) for us Wisconsin wimps to have a picnic or take our dog someplace nice to walk. We have no smoke and it is even hotter in other parts of the country. I am thinking of you (and of my brother in San Francisco.)
