After minor flooding and almost daily rain in May and June, we have had no rain at all in July. Here we are at the last day of the month, and so far not a drop.
Needless to say, our yard is suffering for it. Trees and bushes are dropping leaves, and it looks like we may have lost several Azaleas that have been here for years.
We almost got rain yesterday, and in a way, that’s worse. There were thunderstorms all around us, close enough to hear. The wind even picked up for a while, but the showers bypassed us, one moving just north of us and another to our south.
There is a chance of rain today, but the 40% probability they forecast yesterday has already dropped to 20%. I’m not holding out much hope.
