No doubt all of you have experienced the rather hot weather of late. Pleasant, by my standards, but warm for most I suppose.

Now, before you simply dismiss this piece as the inane ramblings of a lunatic muttering about the weather, please allow me the opportunity to see my analogy through to its completion.
