    Most of my lawn is dormant now.

    Do you still catch and eat them?

    Yes, otherwise I would’ve died already. My getting destroyed moment was a mocking of weenies who always overstate the snowfall rates “getting plastered” “getting destroyed” when visibility is at 3 miles.

    The last time I recorded more than .25” was 6/21 when I received .41”. Since 6/21 I have a total .53”. We dry.

    Heavy heavy fireflies. Getting destroyed currently.

    One of the Euro runs posted earlier this week had me in a dry slot of only .30” or so and I figured at least that was something and better than nothing...I got less than a third of that...

    July pattern(s) and discussion

    Topping off the gas tank at the pumps contributes too.

    .03” yesterday, the grass under the trees didn’t even get wet.
  9. I finally got a drop or two, .02 in the bucket...could use plenty more where that came from. On the plus side the lawn is slowing down but then the other side is that regular watering of the gardens is now required.
  10. Those who don’t learn history are doomed to repeat it...the Battle of Gettysburg occurred over three days, July 1-July 3, 1863. Anyway, need some rain IMBY, the yard is cracked and burned out in the usual spots.
  11. I'm about halfway through The Killer Angels right now, not my first time reading it. As I recall, there has been conflicting information over the years as to what the weather actually was there then. When thinking of Pickett's Charge I can't help but think of the late Shelby Foote who said that while waiting in the shade of the tree before the charge a Confederate soldier saw rabbit run off into the woods and the soldier said "If I was an old hare I'd run too."

    Did you try this yet? I'm curious how it worked out if you did.

    Finished off June with 3.08", which is 1.34" below average, my yard has dried out quite a bit in recent weeks.

    Summer 2019 Banter Thread

    True. At least we aren’t bogged down by weenies asking about school closings, what time the models come out, and “What does the latest run show for my driveway?”
