Our grass is brown, shrubs are droopy, and the trees are turning already, thanks to basically no rain this month. I water the tomatoes when I think about it, but otherwise the weeds are the only thing thriving in our yard (and boy, am I losing that war).

Chicken Little said the sky was supposed to fall today, thanks to the remnants of Fay. It’s been cloudy and ominous and we did get about 13 raindrops around lunchtime. I finally checked the doppler (pictured) to see if I heard the forecast correctly, and am wondering how in the world we have not gotten anything.

My mom just called, as if on cue, and explained that the air is so dry it’s making the rain evaporate on the way down. Go figure. Makes me thirsty just thinking about it.
