Texas is suffering from an extreme drought, while the Great Plains has experienced a cool, wet summer. From coast to coast, I'm wondering about the weather conditions in your state this summer. Are you getting enough rain? Has it been an unusually cool summer? Is the ground cracking at your feet from the dry conditions?
