Nope. Every time rain is in the forecast, it comes down all around us but misses us completely or only drops a few beads of water. If I believed in spirits, I’d say I angered one.
I suppose on the plus side, I’m undergoing a project of cleaning out a pond and this weather is perfect for that. The not so good part is I have to haul water from the pond to keep any plants alive I don’t wish to part with.
This is a very stark contrast to the flood of water we had this spring. I’m guessing that’s what’s keeping some trees alive, the water IS down there somewhere. I tried to dig a hole a few days ago, cut my hand on the very sharp dirt, that’s how dry it is… I had to use a pickaxe to break it up. Broke the handle on my spade too.
