A Little Dry

Things are a little dry around here, believe it or not! The latest release by the United States Drought Monitor even classifies parts of Carroll and Whiteside County as “abnormally dry.”

If the trend continues, more of our area may be added to this category. So far this month, Rockford has picked up just under 0.40 inches of rain. However, we are down nearly 3 inches of rain for the year thanks to a drier than average spring.

Our farm fields, gardens, and lawns could definitely use a little help from the sky! That help may come Saturday and Sunday, although it appears we will not see much more than a few tenths of an inch of rain.
