I do have to disagree with my friends of the Old Farmers’ Almanac, who seem to be having an off year predicting this summer’s weather. “Hotter and drier than normal” does not seem to fit the bill here in New England, where temperatures were downright cool prior to this week. And I don’t know about you, but I have hustled more than once to find a sheltered spot from the rain. Admittedly, though, the forecast for a hot spell in early June was on target, as does the mid-to late-July prediction for hot weather seem to be accurate, so far.

“We’ve had him before…he’s wonderful, he’s very intriguing, he’s very skilled. The kids loved him last year, so we’re having him back,” said Lana Bennison, the head of the children’s department at the library.
