Day 0: CLOUDS

Dear God,

I hope this letter finds you well. I’m writing to inquire about the weather. I mean, it’s cool and all that we’re in California, and it can be hot and cool at the same time, but the inconsistency of this weather is going to make people sick. My mom always said that going from hot to cold very quickly (or vice versa) makes people sick. And nobody likes being sick.

So maybe you could put some clouds in, just to regulate things? I hope it’s not too much to ask. But clouds would keep the hot from being so impossibly scorching (it was 105 a couple days ago, right?) while keeping a lot of the heat that’s on the land from dissipating into space (it was near 60 last night.) That way, you can keep it hot and cold without making people in California sick.

Just a suggestion from a big fan. I hope you’re doing well, and I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Warmly,

Sam.

    Yaweh sorting his mail makes me laugh. (I don’t think people outside of California would agree with this letter though.)

    Really enjoyed this piece. Something about the repetition of folks getting sick in CA really grounded it for me. Just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek in the address to keep it charming without being cloying. Nice work!
