    RE: Late-summer drought

    Oh, I've got LOTS of hackberry trees! We've still had no rain to speak of--a quarter of a inch over a week ago and that was the first precipitation beyond a trace amount since July, which was also dry. Now, we're having record high temperatures, more than twenty degrees over average.

    Hopefully, most of my "baby" trees will make it. Time will tell.

    Meanwhile, I'm learning to like the color brown and enjoy the crisp crunch of what used to be grass!

    RE: Late-summer drought

    Same here. We started out with lots of rain earlier in the season that ended our record drought. Now it's like we're back in that drought again. We got some rain a few weeks ago but aside from that it's been a month and a half or so. Leaves have fallen off the trees prematurely and it's shaping up to be a poor fall color year. I refuse to plant anything in these conditions. Not that anything can be planted when you need a jackhammer to break through the soil.

    The SE US however will need to wait a little longer to catch a break.
