Most of us are wondering if summer will ever happen this year. Once again we have temperatures much below normal, and it seems that the rain will never stop. We received another quarter of an inch overnight. We’ve been having to mow the lawn about every four days and parts of the yard can’t be mowed because it won’t dry up. Many of the fields around us haven’t been touched yet and they should have been planted a month ago. This is going to be a horrible year for the farmers.

Cathie, we actually had a spring that never really happened and so far summer isn’t cooperating much either, is it? And you’re right. It’s a horrible year for farmers not only here but it seems all over the country. As bad as I feel for us, I feel so much worse for them. It has to be a living nightmare having to depend on nature for a living. It never seems to get it right. Not lately, anyway.
