On the other hand, drought has not been on the minds of anyone here in southeastern PA this summer. Since the middle of July, a rough estimate of local rainfall has us with about 16″ and counting. Maybe more (it’s definitely more- we had almost another 3.5 ” after this was written).
I don’t mind the rain. I look at northern California (OK, pretty much the whole state of California) and southeastern Australia, and am grateful that we’re not dealing with the conditions they are facing without any relief in sight.
Our lawns are green, the reservoirs recharged, the rivers at full bank. I’ll take these conditions any day. I just wish there was a way to spread the wealth.
