I’ve always been a believer that in hot weather you don’t want a wet lawn. Yeah it’ll stay green but I think that’s when problems start. Dry and brown doesn’t look great but it also doesn’t hurt your grass.

I’m intrigued. Some gorgeous structure  on one of the cells to the north I can see in the distance

Winding down here about 1.5 in Brunswick in less than a half hour.  Power briefly went out but everything is back up….including the sun.  My gut is worried that we could be setting ourselves up for a major flooding event if the tropics get their act together as many are prognosticating.

Hot and wet equals disease.
