Dry here, too. Only 1.6 inches so far this month. And not just rain. The humidity is unusually low.

On Wednesday late afternoon I checked the humidity level before I went out to the hayfield to start to pick up the hay........29%.....I considered it a blessing . Never thought that was an unusual trend. Still did not stop all of us coming back as wet rags . Was 87*F.

I am starting to worry about my raspberries. They seem to be on hold, lotsa berries, but none of them are ripening.

It is bone dry here in Middle Tennessee also. After having enough rain to get a good start on the garden, it just stopped raining. I would give up fun in the sun this weekend for some rain, but there is none forecast.

It is bone dry here in Middle Tennessee. We had enough rain to get the garden going, but then it just stopped. I would give up any fun in the sun activity this weekend to get some rain, but there is none forecasted.

It's almost official. Even though May is not over yet, the National Weather Service is saying this is the second driest May on record for several locations in Southeastern Ohio and northern West Virginia.

The driest May was during the Dust Bowl.
