This is Looking A Lot Like 2012
As we hit the 90's today with a hot, dry wind blowing in from the Southeast it reminded me so much of the same conditions we saw during the Spring/Summer of 2012 I had to pause a bit.
Of course the actual drought effected counties has shrunk in Missouri. If you remember the April 15th map it had the center section of the state as being abnormally dry all the way into St' Louis but we have also had an extremely dry weekend and now two days into the work week and hitting record high temps.
The only good thing I remember about the drought of 2012 was all the extra time I had to get projects finished since I didn't have to mow constantly.
The extra time didn't balance out the loss of bee hives or the miserable hay crop we got that year though. I certainly hope we are not heading for a repeat of 2012.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
