Yardenman said:You know it is really dry when:
The poison ivy dies.
Trees drop limbs.
Radishes won't grow.
The cats run into the house to drink water so they can pee later.
Spiders are crowding around the pond.
Camels are crowding around the pond.
You spray the garden and no water reaches the ground.
The Triffids are dying in the fields.
The Martians come offering US water.
