We need the rain. Badly. There's been no substantial rain up here for about a month, possibly longer. The potato tops are starting to look really nice, but unless we have sustained soil moisture, it's looking dry. Conversely, the grouse had a great spring & there are zillions of chicks. Conversely, again, the rivers are all very low & some newbies are finding that even the world's best canoeists get out & drag on occasion. Conversely, yet once again, this situation encourages the brookies to bunch up in the deeper holes.
I wish we'd get some rain down here, that's for sure. We got zip from the passing storm front last night. Kennebunk and the surrounding area are rapidly turning into Dry Gulch City. I keep expecting to see a few tumbleweeds passing along in the breeze, any minute.
This should make the farmers happy. I have a friend that says the water levels in the lakes and rivers in Aroostook right now are like late August levels.
The rivers are taking a jump today and tonight.
