Traditionally May is a temperate month, a more or less gentle easing into warmer weather. We enjoy the return of beloved bird species and the world turns green. Forsythia, lilac, bridal veil and honeysuckle spill their fragrances in the breeze, and we accommodate the gradual transition from extremes of winter to extremes of summer. This May the familiar patterns do not hold. Not long after mid-month, brutally hot and humid weather of the kind we associate with July moved in.
