    it's pretty fuckin dry. in fact, it's dry enough that people throwing their ciggs into the bark are causing the bark to catch and smolder :confused:

    its gettin that way here.. we normally get 72 inches of rain a year..

    usually the average here for the last 2 weeks is about 2 inches,,.. an weve had NONE!!

    kinda sucks bein we rely on rain water for our potable water..

    at least we have a spring fed pond and a 275 gallon tank and a 5 horse power pump..

    or wed be really dirty hippies.. :p

    I think even with the all the rain some have seen in the last 48 hours its still far too dry out and shall be a rough summer if this trend keeps up.
