It has been a long and hot summer. Autumn should have arrived with rain and falling leaves. Summer continues uninterrupted anyway.
You know why. It turns out the seasons and the weather are controlled by an ancient and complex machine. You found that machine earlier this year. In your haste to test it out, you seemed to have jammed the mechanism.
If you do not figure out how to unjam it, it will be summer forever. That sounds good but the lack of rain is already causing concern.
