55 - Refuge

Summer drought had turned the yard to brown grass and dust. The garden went unplanted and trees subsisted on their city-ordained weekly water ration. Where in this hot dry world was a guy to take refuge? Hooray for the mechanical genius of humans! Thanks to the condenser of their air conditioner, one wet haven remained.
