June eases from spring to summer, delivering some of the longest, finest days of the year.  Although a dreary day comes in now and again, much of the weather has become a local affair.  Showers and thunderstorms skip about to soak one farm, and leave another bone-dry.  But leading the list is the heating of the sun.  The year’s most intense rays focus on various fields and exposed hillsides to create columns of warm, rising air.  In their most gentle form they cradle the wings of a circling hawk, or the ambitions of a hang glider.  At their greatest, they send billowing clouds soaring to dizzying heights of 7 miles or more, their shadows growing into the threat of a sudden afternoon squall of rain and thunder.
