"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
It's Hot Out There

We all know it was going to be hot and we all know it will be again, but we always get - eventually - finally get the rain we need to keep our town going. We haven't gotten that saving rain yet and it's not even listed in the forecast as a chance - just to give us some hope. The ag folks from Purdue and the weather guys and gals from the National Weather Service say this is the dryest its been since the 1980's and even with farmers being a bit older than the typical worker, that's a long time. If you're the praying kind, you might add "rain" to the list - oh you are and you already have? Great - on both accounts.
