Thanks, PG.

And by “Thanks, PG” I mean, “Screw you, PG.”

What possible reason could the PG have for placing this picture so glaringly on their home page?


I mean, when I clicked on my PG bookmark and saw this oddly blue sky, I was a little blinded at first. Look how blue that sky is. Where is that? Can I go there right now? Then I figure, well, that must be a Burgher vacationing in sunny Florida, right? Wrong.

So why put this picture of non Burghers enjoying the sun in Florida on a Pittsburgh website, if for no other reason than to drive home the sad point that this has been quite a shitty week of weather and that the next time we see a sky that blue and cloudless, we’ll probably all instantly burn to a crisp because our skin has become so sun-sensitive due to lack of exposure.

And yes, come late August early September when I am complaining about how damn hot it is and that I can’t wait for a cool day, you can go ahead and refer me to this very post of mine.

In the meantime, screw you, PG.

    Whattaya talk? Both Thursday and Friday had long stretches in the afternoon when it was not only nice and sunny, but dewily refreshing from earlier showers. And this afternoon, when I was trimming hedges, it was downright summery. Of course, I’ve been picking wild mushrooms from Schenley Park and wrapping them in my morning omelet.
