When I was in fourth grade, I received the traditional assignment, from Sister Vienna, "What I Did Over My Summer Vacation." I'd had a great summer, until about the beginning of August, when school looming on the horizon reared its ugly head and blemished that last month, making me think of the coming year. Through teary eyes, I squeaked out four or five sentences, over two hours or so. The good sister paused for a bit, wondering what to say herself, and finally announced, "Short but sweet." With that in mind I can relate well to this on-the-road podcast from my favorite forecaster.
