Yep, it’s been mighty warm and dry here. For far too long. Not that folks don’t like sunny days in the 60s and 70s. Or even some record-breaking days in the 80s. But all that nonsense should have ended at least a month ago. I had my sprinkler system turned off the first week of October so I could stop worrying about being caught off guard by an early freeze. As a result I was out last week hand-watering the new trees I put in last spring and still waiting for the first freeze. And if the promised cooldown next week doesn’t bring some moisture, I’ll probably be doing it again.
I hope those guys on the corner are more effective than the raindancers and cloud-seeders we used to have in Oklahoma.
