Holiday days

I’ve been taking some time off from things, including this blog. But now it’s time for business—there are things to discuss.

The weather is still glorious and warm, which makes it easy to stay in holiday mode. Parts of the South Island had temperatures over the weekend that were nearly the hottest on record. It was hot in Auckland, but not quite that bad, and it cooled off in the evening.

This summer is predicted to be sunnier, warmer and drier than last year, which is fine with me. The fact that Auckland and parts north may have high humidity at times, is not as welcome: As we said in Chicago, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.”

All of which makes it hard to break out of holiday mode, but it’s time. There are things to discuss.
