Textured Tuesday: Too Little, Too late

After a summer with temperatures that ran 10 to 20 degrees 
higher than normal and very nearly no significant rainfall, 
the temperatures have broken and and it rained heavily twice
within a four day period.  But its too late for the crops and a lot
of the trees. Much of the midwest has been declared
a drought disaster area. In my neighborhood, many of the trees
have dropped at least some of their leaves, while some of the 
smaller trees have died.

That looks like it should have been taken in November, Speedway.
You've had no rain this year and it's ruined your crops; we've had nothing but rain this year and it's ruined our crops.
Kick a climate change denier today.

I think the top photo is nothing but gorgeous.

Thanks, Lin. I just loved the way the cell structure showed up beneath the raindrops. To me, the drops shapes are echoed in the pebbles in the concrete.
