    Found this link the other day, US Drought Monitor . I'm in toledo, oh and we could sure use the rain. Looks as if this map is a little old, I'll be interested to see the updated version. For the past week it's been 90+ and no rain at all! I think for June we only had .3" of rain. :cry: Today we had a couple scattered light showers, but not even close to what we need. If we don't get a couple of inches real soon thing for July are going to look real bad. :realmad:

    We arent in a drought area but have had very littly rain. :) I love it!!! Very little cutting and still getting paid!!! Plus it is giving us a chance to catch up on some excavation work. We are also taking on more landscaping jobs with the added help with the cutting crew not having much work.

    We have not registered 1 inch of rain since April 21. 10" behind for the year.
