Chess and the summer sky

When I played competitive chess, or at least tried to, there was a saying in the various books I studied. The threat is stronger than the execution. That was the way it was at the mouth of the Kanawha River yesterday.

The gray sky promised yet another day of yet more rain, but all we got was a sprinkle here and there. Thankfully.

The river should start dropping soon.

If the rains are over, perhaps the river bank will dry out and we can at last enjoy a sustained period of summer.
