WPA (Works Progress Administration) workers load a truck with flood debris in Louisville, KY in 1937. It sure looks a muddy mess, but since we haven’t seen a drop of rain since May,  I’d take a muddy mess right now.

    I remember many years ago reading about a proposed project to divert fresh water that eventually runs off into the ocean to areas that suffer from drought. Obviously it never happened;but I still think about that when I read about devastation from flood and drought.

  3. I was going to say the same as Diana. Our long houseroad / driveway looks like the photo. We know we’re close to home by the stream running down the hill! hehe 😉 Happy day

    It is hot here in Ottawa as well Kerbey – touching 100F daily with no rain – very hot for us. We had dry thunder last night for about 2 hours but not a drop of rain. be of good cheer – this too shall pass.

      Yes, my fingers are crossed! Rain will come one day. But I just hate watching the trees and grass dying. The fig tree only makes withered little things now. And that dry thunder is such a tease, Paul. Isn’t that heat unusually hot for you?
