Wisconsin is officially in a drought emergency. It’s dry and it’s hot and it’s miserable. In the month of July, the lowest high temperature so far was 87 degrees (about 30 degrees Celsius), and we’ve had several days with temps of 100 or more (38 Celsius). May and June usually have nearly 8 inches of rain, and this year it was only 2.5. We’ve had no measurable rain in July.
Last night we had a lovely thunderstorm.
As Ladysmith Black Mambazo sang, “Rain, Rain, Beautiful Rain.”
Drought isn’t over, but at least we’re heading in the right direction. And the high today is supposed to be 81 (27). Heaven!
