Brown Grass

We just returned from a little trip to Myrtle Beach to watch some baseball and were surprised by how brown the grass seemed to get while we were away. Then we saw this map, which shows Howard is suffering from moderate drought conditions, just one level down from severe. Then we read in WaPo that the governor is going to seek federal relief for farmers in the lower and middle Eastern Shore. And then we learned the blue crabs harvest is in trouble. And so we dutifully followed today's gardening tip of the week in WaPo, and avoided fertilizing in hot weather (ok, that last one is just because we are naturally lazy).

We report all this in hopes it serves as our little rain dance. The more we complain about the dry weather, the sooner it will pour.
