The 31 days of rain here in Anchorage are getting a little OLD,coldest summer on record for us Northern folks and its still RAINING!!!! If you have a boat tied up to the dock make sure to slack up on the lines other wize she'll capsize.
In New Jersey we have had virtually NO rain all summer. There have been spots where local thunder storm dumped a lot but in other areas there has been almost none since the middle of June.
I planted thousands of dollars in warm season grasses and forbs for bird habitat. I went to look at it again yesterday and there was nothing but bare ground. In spots, the seed sprouted but the top growth was killed off by weeks of 90 to 100 degree heat and NO rain.
