now, we have been without rain before. and we have been with high temps before. this year alone, i've seen the lawns go brown, and come back again a few times after rain. but this, takes the cake. i have never personally seen anything this bad in reguards to drought/heat stress. even the lawns that traditionally handled stress very good, are falling victim in the last couple of weeks. our short attempt at aerating resulted in small, dry, chalklike cores that fell apart before even comming clean. i don't think, even a week of heavy rains, will make a difference. i'm afraid at this point, there is no recovery. what do you think?
