Island Weather is Wackadoodle

060Forecasts said high was 71 for the past few days.They’re wrong, because it’s been much hotter. The weather-folk seem hesitant to revise their claims. In downtown Bar Harbor, sweating people drift down towards the pier licking wet ice cream off a cone. Sand Beach isn’t crowded. Tiny sand, seashell fragments, follow me home on my flipflops.
