Are things as dry as last year?

Or was the spring wet enough this year?

Do you have to water the soil around your foundation to keep it in place or is that just a rumor they tell us northerners?

Had decent moisture this spring, then it dried up.

What's a foundation? Oh, yeah!  That stuff underground. It has to fend for itself. If it wants water, it better get to sucking it out of the weeds!

It's been wet here but now it's turned hot and humid. Today it was into the 90's and humid. Last 3 days have been like this. It's been a strange year for weather.  I hope you don't get as dry as it was last year Kenny.

We need some moisture right now, Brian. We've been moving some dirt around and it's all powder right now!

I would take the dry you have over the rain I have! It has not rained in a few days, but the ground is still water logged! It makes it very hard to do much of anything in the yard!

Me three!  I'm about ready to build an Ark and there is no real relief in sight, chance of rain for the remainder of the week.

I noticed in your youtube video of the 4041 that there was no sign of green on the roadside.  Hoping you get some rain SOON!
