Kevin asked that question today. It’s been extremely hot, dry and windy lately.
As much as I complained about the three weeks of rain we got when we first returned to Wisconsin, it has hardly rained since then. Our area is extremely dry. The grass is brown which usually doesn’t happen until late July or August. At least we’re not dealing with fires like they are in the southwest.
The corn has still been growing, but it definitely needs rain. I was always told that when the corn is too dry, the leaves begin to curl up and get pointy looking. That’s exactly how it looks right now. We’ve been watering our little garden every day.
Its been in the mid 90s the last three days. The weather people are promising rain tonight and cooler temperatures the rest of the week. I sure hope so. I feel so bad for our son Eric in this type of weather. He is an HVAC service technician and this kind of weather is brutal for him. He’s pretty much working round the clock. Hang in there Eric!
The weird thing is they’ve had lots of rain in Minnesota to the west of us. In fact, parts of Minnesota are experiencing flooding. Their weather usually comes our way, but not lately. Its been going through northern Wisconsin and missing us completely. I sure hope we get that rain tonight!
Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
