    Many parts of the Upstate SC have had only a trace of rain since mid May! On top of that is has been 95 to 100+ windy degrees most of the time. The ground is like cement. My vacation starts next week. A vacation of nausea, frustration and anxiety. been through it many times before and it never gets any easier. Well before, gas prices weren't this high. Who knows when it will ever start to rain again. None of the weather guessers even try to guess. Sorry to hear you are in this mess too

    Here in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee its getting dry. Had few thunderstorms today but they were hit and miss. Didn't produce alot of water. We are around 6 inches below normal rainfall for the year already and thats not counting last year. We have had enough rain this year for a good spring, but it has crept up on us these past two weeks is when the cancelations have started. Drought counter is up to $800.00 lossed so far for last couple of weeks and counting.:dizzy:
