Drought of 2011

I think it's time to wash my car... It might be the last hope for getting any rain around here.

To say that we are having a drought is a huge understatement. According to the national weather service here in our area we are 20 INCHES below average rain fall totals for this time of year. We have had as many as 145 days with less than 1/2 inch of precipitation. And record heat - with June 2nd, being the earliest we have topped the century mark in history. And it certainly hasn't cooled down much since.

We apparently haven't been watering enough to make up for the lack of rainfall as one of our big oak trees bit the dust a few weeks ago.  We had hoped to resuscitate it, but it's not looking good...
