Rainy July, Burnt Toast August

Well the numbers are finally in, July was the wettest month on record for Arkansas in my backyard, for past July's that is. The Arkansas river going through Murrey Lock and Dam had estimated 200,000 Cubic Feet per Second of water. When the normal amount is 34,000 CFpS. It was up every month from April through July. National Drought maps show us not to be in a drought, yet!

But it is the 10th of August and not a drop of rain has hit the parched soils of my backyard yet this month.

Hope your backyard is pleasantly wet and humid and full of August flowers.
