The weather here has been very dry for weeks. Our little lakes are drying up. Every day they seem to be a little shallower. Our meadow that stands in for a lawn is actually crispy. We don’t water it but we do water our vegetable gardens. Today there has been a lot of thunder. The sky is getting darker. It looks like this:
It is hot out, probably near 90°, and humid.
That little speck near the center of the photo is one of our resident Sandhill cranes.
I really hope we do get some rain!
