    I know we are several inches down here in IN, but does anyone have an exact figure for this month and last? It's terrible! This week looks to be one of the worst with 90+ temps for 10 days straight and little to no rain
    ( according to the weather channel)!

    I've heard other states are very low on rain too. Please let me know who else is feeling this drought!

    I'll just put it this way...!

    I'm sure if I went fishing and caught a catfish or two they would probably be covered with tick's....

    It's like the places that normally are dry are getting floaded and the places that are normally well, normal, are very dry. It's hot as hell here in Indy today and is supposed to be about the same for the next 10 days or more. I'm afraid of what will happen to the grass in 90+ tempts for that long without much precip!
