Okiedawn is posting this on the OK forum. In case you didn't notice we are having a drought. It is too hot for me. I go out for a few minutes and get so hot I have to recuperate a while.

Be careful Helen. I don't tolerate as much heat as I used to and go out only early in the morning unless it's just a short trip out to check for butterflies or something. It's just too hot.
To make that map more accurate, I'm going to get a red sharpie and make a dot over my yard. lol We missed what little rain there was. My yard is suffering badly.
I can't believe it's still just July.

RE: drought monitor

OK forum had this posted again. I hope we get a slow rain this weekend.

helen, hoping for the same girl. We all need it!

RE: drought monitor

I check the NOAA and the amounts predicted are a little disheartening.....1/4 to 1/2 inch. Anything we get is appreciated.

We are feeding hay daily now.

RE: drought monitor

Many gardener friends are fans of early morning for chores. But me? We're in the process of retiring, and sleeping late is a true luxury! I don't know that we'll ever stop loving it. ;)
