Seems like your year has been similar to ours in the UK. Really dry winter followed by a dry spring and we had drought warnings in some parts of the UK. Then as soon as the media started talking about droughts, it started raining and rained pretty much all summer here!! All the summer rain did zero good for the gardens here, unless you like growing grass! And now the food crop has been hit hard for now so food prices are going up here, grrr.... Too much rain here and our prices go up and too much sun over your way and your prices go up, not good!
Hope you get the right amount of rain that you need! Leaves are falling off the trees here so winter is just around the corner, brrrrrr...........
