Dry Hole

    Looking like a bad exit wound
        The heart of a frightening drought.
              The meteorologists call it "Exceptional,"
                      Which is the tip top of the drought severity scale.
                              I'd call it.....

...CRAZY DRY

And it has been CRAZY WINDY with some DRY LIGHTNING.  And CARELESS HUMANS.


All they can do is try to save houses and barns
Last year we had the Dog Head Fire in our neighborhood.
   We were all packed up and ready to evacuate. All irreplaceables were in storage.
       Dogs were kenneled. Cat crates were ready. Friends were ready to put us up.
             When I hear "2000 people evacuated," it has a visceral impact.
                    Some of us live in flood plains, some in earthquake zones, 
                          There are tornado and hurricane alleys.
                                Very few of us would live anywhere else.

BUT IT'S CRAZY DRY OUT HERE!
