This morning I struggled to keep my eyes open as I drove my son to school. No more searing heat, Santa Ana winds, and fire. May gloom is here. We need the coolness. We need rain. Unfortunately, when the sun hides, I find it difficult to stay awake. When we moved to Eugene, I had to set an alarm to pick my son up from school. Remaining awake and alert when driving was a daily struggle in the damp and cloudy Northwest. Here in Southern California, I have a better time of it, but today I struggle.
