I Give Up
Well, another cold front goes through, and again not a drop of rain in Iowa City; I can't remember the last time we had a real rain. I've lived in Iowa 50 years, and have never seen it so dry; the wells around us are drying up, the lawn is dead, and quite a few things in the garden, including large shrubs are dead or dying, with leaves dropping off the trees when the dry wind blows. we are at the point where time after time,large storms just dissipate when they reach east-central Iowa because the air is so dry here. I'm going to plow up the garden and buy some camels!
