History has a way of finding us, even if we would like to decline the honor. And this summer will go down in history. We’ve passed the drought of 1956 and are closing in on 1936. My grandfather, who has passed on, would never accept a summer worse than 1936, the formative event of his long life.

In fact, I’m planning on using this summer as the main evidence for the proposition that the younger generation hasn’t got what it takes.
