for nearly a month. Grumbling About 3 + weeks ago we got like 1/4 inch. That's it. I have been watering things in the garden which I hate to do - water is very expensive here.

Things I have not watered are starting to die back from lack of moisture.

Funny since we had a very wet Spring.

This past month has reminded me of the Summers of '12 & '13 when it basically did not rain all summer. In '12 I mowed the grass 3 times the whole season.

Shoot! We're getting too much rain! Grumbling Another tropical storm passing by throwing a lot of water out to us. I'm glad, though, that we will not get hit by the typhoon! Hurray!

No rain for the last 28 days, only 3½ inches since first part of July. Had almost 36 inches from January to the end of June--thankfully! At that time, the reservoirs were at near critical lows from the on-going drought. Even though there was some flooding in May, we'd be in such a world of hurt now without it.
If you never ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Same here. I think we got an inch last time. But the temps still in the 90's sucked up that fast. They promise us rain at the end of the week. One can only hope! I am watering like I did back in August.

Ir has rained around me several times - but it splits and goes around to the North or South. Today it was raining about 8 miles South of me. My City is located on the Missouri River and on our side we have immediate river bluffs and over in Kansas a few miles away are bluffs as well. That along with atmospheric conditions often causes rain & storms heading our way to split. Watching it on the radar is eery.
