It's So Hot and Dry That...

It is like a Tall Tale.

It's so hot and dry that farmers here are cutting their corn crop for silage or baling it like hay.

It's so hot and dry that a farmer was baling some hay, hit a rock with a metal part on the machine and the resulting spark burned 40 acres.

It's so hot and dry that a field of CORN burned. When is the last time you have ever heard of that?

These things are happening here in central Wisconsin, and we are not (?) listed as being under a severe drought, only moderate drought.

In my life, I don't remember things like these.

  1. I know. It's become downright oppressive - and scary.
