    If I could I would send you our rain. Its rained almost daily for the past month. My yard is nothing but a mud ball. We need a good week of no rain to dry out but no luck its supposed to rain again today.

    Thanks Piecemaker, just checked and there's a 30% chance today. Hard to believe but our chicks have never seen rain in their lives, they're gonna freak out if we get some: "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!!!" lol

    At least things grow when you have rain...or even floods. When there's drought everything just starts dieing and catching on fire...

    Edit: both suck, not trying to compare it....I just personally would rather have floods and rain lol my vegetables would still be alive!!! [​IMG]

    I've never seen it so brown, this early. First day of summer and it looks like October. Roadside trees are even wilting. I'm glad that it will be "cooler" today at 95 instead of 105, but man I wish it would rain.

    I'm really worried about fire here in the Austin area. There are lots of people, and its dry and very windy. I'm going to be away for the fourth of July weekend, and I'm a little nervous about it.
