The Insight got me up there at 78.9 MPG in the hot, humid morning. I learned to run Wheeling curve-side #639, and made three round trips with passengers. Then we got Connecticut Co. #1160 out and I ran it out and back with just my conductor and the Asst. Superintendent. I made a few minor mistakes hurrying back to put the cars away before the thunderstorms arrived. We did get a bit wet. Several more days like this might get me my license, break the drought, or both at once.

Shopped on the way home, so dinner waited till after Planning Board. But now I have enough distilled water to do the batteries tomorrow. And parts to finish fixing W's bike. And the combine to assemble. And the Civic to take to the body shop, if I can get a ride back.

2 cm of rain at home, cooler for a while, but most of the humidity came back. Many windows open cooling off the house. I expect it will be a couple of days before the rye dries out.
