My bit of business near Klamath Falls has been taken care of. I can stay or go. If I go, then where?
Out at the coast the daytime highs are in the low 60s. It’s overcast with very high humidity. Mmmm, no.
In just about every other direction I have the choice of hot and humid, very hot and dry, or very hot and dry with daily thunderstorms. Oh, and it’s the beginning of forest fire season.
In order to get to higher, cooler elevations, I’d have to pass through some triple-digit heat. But that could be done in the early morning.
It’s nice here, even though the afternoons are rather hot, in the 90s. I have adequate cell service. And friends. But the forest makes me feel hemmed in.
The rational decision would be to hang here for a while, but my rational side doesn’t have the majority vote. As with most elections, it’s a matter of which side can appeal to the undecided electorate.
