It rained all day. I sat at the window with Jak longing for the sunshine of the previous six weeks to return. The roads, slick with mud from the tractor hurrying between the fields. Farmers desperate to move the livestock to shelter. It rained the next day as well. And all the following week. It was still raining the day we should have returned to school.




Extrapolating the here and now to glimpse the near future.
