At what is very nearly the stroke of Dawn, 0644; it's 0639. The mages predict a cloudy day with almost 90 degrees later on, tsk; I hope that doesn't happen (and indeed the predicted high yesterday was missed by two or three degrees) although as Dawn passes and the paucity of cloud becomes more readily apparent my hope diminishes. Today is again a feria, so the Mass of Sunday (Introibo) will be repeated.
