No rain = tons of weeds?

Is it just my luck, or are the weeds especially bad this year? We are at -8" of rainfall this summer and it seems like all I do is weed weed weed! And yet they pop right back. And some types that I've never seen here before. Are there some kinds of weeds that actually need excess dry/hot to germinate? I'm really starting to look forward to winter. And I hate winter!

RE: No rain = tons of weeds?

I am having the same experience here in S.E. Michigan. Weeds that I have never seen before and weeds that I have been able to control by pulling, but this year are running RAMPANT!! A normal summer means about one hour per week of weeding. This year, it has been more like 4 hours per week. AAAARRRGGHHHH!!

Is it really dry there too?
