    90% of my lawns are brown and crispy and this is the Pacific North Wet.
    This is the worst drought in my 30 years of this buisness.

    The only reason turf is (somewhat) green around here--as opposed to July--is because of the cooler temps. But it is just as dry.

    I'm not far from you, but last fall was way worse. It's dry as heck now. But there is moisture in the ground, and the grass grows a tad bit EOW.

    96% of MN landscape is abnormally dry or worse
    fire watches are pretty much the norm in many areas and spreading
    at above normal rates.

    Not sure if we've had measurable precip since Aug 1. N Metro
    Fall turkey hunt this weekend ...early birds in the AM should be successful with 80* temps....and no rain.

    Haha yes.
    May was near wettest on record. June below. July above a little. Aug and sept way below average.

    I don't remember exactly how last year played out.
    Ha yes.
