Hot, hot and dry, dry here in the PNW “wetside"
54 day now with no rain.
Most of these days 90F+
It has turned very brown, dry and crunchy.
Too many days now with less than one mile visibility due to Canadian and eastern WA and OR wild fires.
Nearst city-city to me is now ordered voluntary water rationing.
Like here they use deep well aquifer public water. Wells draw down are getting scary.
My hand water canning this year will be what saves my garden from a mandatory commanded no-watering allowed.
No overhead watering sprinkling been done by me this year. (ground hoses sneeked nightly now out to the fruit trees to keep them alive)
Ha! 1967 Was the record dry year here at 71 days no rain.
After that was the when our own private well was deepened from 100” to 198’.
The one I can no longer legally use. Do I sound bitter?
