We are fighting grass fires everyday, Unheard of usually this time of year. Yesterday a barn and alot of round bales consumed by one of these grass fires. My pastures are brown and dormant. Livestock on hay and feed. The price of hay will be outragious this winter.Some communities are on water ration.

It was worth our 10-hour + drive to Indiana just to see green grass again, and sleep with temperatures in the 50's. It sure is scary to look at my yard and realize that one random spark could set it off, and my house would be gone.

Early summer was a little dry, however not too dry now. I live in lower North MI. Been a cool summer here as well.

It is really dry here in west central Il too, my yard is brown and a lot of the crops around here are starting to dry out and die too. My garden is still going but just because I pump well water to it every night, I am not sure how long the well will hold out.

I've seen people give up and turn their cattle into the soybean fields. Beans aren't but six or eight inches tall anyway with no beans. That's got to cost, big time!

That reminds me of last year. All water hoses checked for quality and on alert and ready in case one of those sparks jumnps over. This year however you couldn't start a fire out there with gasoline.
