Sorry that you're suffering through "East Coast weather," Packrat--really, I am sorry because I know how miserable it is. I hope that conditions improve. The swamp cooler probably doesn't do much in such humidity.
We, actually, are enjoying a rather tolerable day (temperatures in the mid-80s, cloud cover), and it's forecast to be this way through the end of the week. I may even play hookey on Friday afternoon and visit a botanical garden with Kali if the weather remains relatively pleasant.
Oh... about that partial hedgehog cactus: it looks like it was vaporized by an alien ray gun!
We had a big thunderstorm last night--did some damage to houses in the area.
I'm not buying the ray gun explanation, Scott. Regarding what Dr. K said about houses being damanged, a microburst hit Columbus, New Mexico and completely destroyed 28 mobile homes. Thankfully nobody was injured.
