I don't normally follow this thread, but I am so tired of watering, I have to scream into the ethos...or more accurately the cloud, I guess. The whole month of July had exactly one-half inch of rain. I've never had drought like this in Maine. I'm not set up for irrigation and the only method is standing there with a hose and praying the well doesn't go dry. Every single thunderstorm has missed us. It sure gets discouraging. The only good part is at ,least the temperature isn't in the 100s like in the Midwest...

Last night's storm advisory missed us except for the lightening and thunder. Garden is dry dry dry. A little rain isn't enough. All my garden energies are in getting more and more mulch down. 90 degree days keep happening until a cooling trend is predicted midweek. Rain promised for 7 pm today too. Leaves have turned over already. I'm going back to dump more bags!

I know that newly planted shrubs need water every week the first year, but in the second year, how often do they need to be watered, do you think? And how about established shrubs/dwarf trees, how long can they handle no rain, any ideas?

I don't like being cold either, but being hot and sweaty makes me really grouchy and shortens my fuse tremendously. I am sure if I ever killed anyone, it would be in summer. ^_^

I think that pirl is east of that county.
2" of rain early this evening & more at the moment. Very humid so uncomfortable even if temp is 73. There was a worry earlier this afternoon as the storm seemed to be heading towards the sites of last year's tornado, but it turned into a rainstorm instead.

have had two days of sporatic heavy downpours here - it was pouring this morning and it gave me a chance to see if the downspout i buried into a trench and the rock wall i built up above the stream are doing the job of diverting rain from washing into the pond - happy to report my efforts worked.

now do i dare venture out for a hike - supposed to have more rain.

Great sleeping night last night here as well. Nice day today. High was 83.

Weather in YS was exquisite. Never higher than the low 80's and ridiculously dry - a bit too dry. We all had dry skin, lips and throats. Woke up to 30's each morning. One morning was 30 degrees! Warmed up quickly, though.
