Oh, how we love to be overheated - while it lasts!

You get the feeling that this will be one of those summers the kids will remember in years to come. One of the mythical barometer summers against which they will measure future, crappy summers.
They will think, "Am I imagining it or were the summers different when I was a kid? Were they endless and sunny?" The fact that this is the second good summer in a row will cement those memories.
Indeed, there is a dangerous sense of entitlement growing among us now. People are starting to talk with confidence again about holidaying at home. They are booking that mobile home again for next year. It's almost as if you could rely on the weather. And of course that is one of our national malaises. When it is sunny we imagine it will be sunny forever.
