Where did all the rain go ? We haven't had any significant rainfall here since mid May. Dryer then I've ever seen New England .
We've got it.Where did all the rain go?
Funny you mentioned this. Last week I was in Tennessee and they mentioned on the morning news that they were expecting some rain which they were happy about because everyone's lawn had turned brown. I've lived on the West Coast all my life and our lawns would be brown much of the summer too if we relied on rainfall to keep it watered. But everyone waters their lawns. Most have irrigation systems installed which are on timers so that the lawn, gardens, shrubs are watered regularly. Is this not a common practice in the South/Mid West? I understand there's usually enough rain to keep things green in the summer back there but why don't people water when it's been dry?We are extrememly dry where I'm at in southern Minnesota. My lawn is completely brown.
I did notice business seemed to have greener, lush lawns than residences in TN. Just found it interesting how it doesn't seem to be common place to water outside of the west.Some homeowners and businesses water to keep their lawns plush. I typically do not. Typically my lawn stays kinda green through the dog days of summer. I don't recall seeing my lawn this burnt in the past.
I've been to Spokane several times over the years and you guys would appear to be much dryer (in the summer) that us back here in MN.I did notice business seemed to have greener, lush lawns than residences in TN. Just found it interesting how it doesn't seem to be common place to water outside of the west.
Better fatten up like a grizzly preparing for winter cause lean times are a'comin.A farmer friend had insurance adjuster out this week and fields that generally average 190-230 bushel of corn per acre are estimated to yield 1 bushel per acre this year. This drought is guna effect everyone in the hip pocket soon.
