I was looking on the weather log this morning, and we have not had a drop of rain here the entire month, and not much luck of getting any.
You have probably heard about the fires that are going on in the state. First there was the fire in the middle of Lake Okeechobee, which has the water so low that islands of grass provided fuel for the fire which was started by arson. The fire was 10.5 miles long by 2 miles wide. Since it burns down in the muck, it will burn for weeks or months until there is sufficient rain to put it out.
Then there was the fires near Palm Bay that burned about 100 homes, also from arson. They caught one guy who is a suspect, and they will probably put him under the jail.
The grass is all brown, and the trees are turning yellow. Poor animals are having trouble finding water, as you can see in this video I shot from my back porch.
Poor raccoon is looking for water wherever he can find it.
