"A cloud!" he gasped between sobs. "The heatwave's breaking! There's no need to - don't sacrifice Doug! The heat's ending - it's over! - That cloud! - It's a sign from God!"

It was a sign alright. But one tiny cloud was nothing but God telling us that we were on the right track...
...that what greater sacrifice could there be than the son of God himself?
