I don’t understand why you think there’s no serious drought? I mean are you serious or just trying to be funny? It’s one of the worst we’ ve had since the 60’s

Trails have turned to nothing but dust.

I found a Chicken of the Woods mushroom about the size of a baseball glove growing on a piece of bark near the garden today. Pretty cool, put it up on a stump for harvest. The are excellent in tomato sauce with hot peppers.

 I really really hope you never have any serious damage to your house , you have been lucky to only have twigs fall.

Should help with the drought.

mushrooms. In forests across the world, Earth’s decomposers are helping seed clouds and promote rainstorms.that’s the conclusion of a study published this week in PLOS ONE, which adds a fascinating layer of nuance to the connection between fungi and rainstorms. Rain, as we know, stimulates mushroom growth, eventually leading to fully-fruited mushrooms that release spores. Once airborne, these spores, much like salt and dust particles, can act as cloud condensation nuclei — surfaces on which water vapor condenses, eventually forming rain.

“We can watch big water droplets grow as vapor condenses on [the mushroom spore’s] surface,” study co-author Nicholas Money of Miami University told Discovery News. “Nothing else works like this in nature.”

As a grandfather, I still look back to 1966 when I lived in NNJ.  That met summer held NYC's heat and drought records for 44 years until 2010 came in a fraction warmer.  Still holds the drought record, also tied with 1953 for most 100+ (4) though the earlier year's 4th triple came in met fall.  Since I spent that summer working between counter and grill at Curtis-Wright's summer resort, that additional heat just accentuated the extremes that season.  On Sunday, July 3 NYC was 103 and LGA 107 and we had the biggest crowd through the gate of any day in my 2 summers there.  The coil thermometer at the end of the counter was well beyond 120, the highest number on its face, and I worked a lot closer to grill and fryers than was that instrument.  It was so far beyond anything in my NNE experience that the memory is emblazoned on my brain.  :o

I went to asbury park on 7/3/66  Sand was ridiculously hot....loved it!

It’s because the “drought” isn’t a big deal up here. It’s rained plenty in the pike region  the last month. Doesn’t take much to wipe out a D1 scenario here.

This is nothing like the 1960s droughts because those were longer term. Several very dry years in a row.

Yeah that’s why I laugh as well... what’s the true impact?  Suburban lawns went brown?

I still laugh at a Ginxy comment from a while back saying something along the lines of “Have you ever heard of an invention called a hose?”

I haven’t heard one person mention the drought anywhere outside this forum.  My parents in Woodstock had a fine garden...said the lawn was hurting but shocker, they watered the garden and got a lot of produce during one of the most severe droughts ever in NCT.

It’s a skill to recognize edible mushrooms. I remember, as a boy, older relatives going to, still existing, undeveloped land areas in the boroughs  to harvest edible greens and mushrooms. You never guessed with a mushroom, being wrong and ingesting the error could be deadly.. I guess under the right conditions you might never starve with a good tract of uncultivated land. As always ....

Our town was on a full outside watering ban for most of the summer. Not supposed to water garden or anything. Many did not adhere to it, but the town threatened to cut off service to offenders.
