I'm a cold weather guy, Spring, Fall, Winter are my best months.  This summer has been torture.  We started hitting 100 degree days in May and looking at the forecast, it's not letting up.

Currently in the Midwest we have a moderate to extreme drought.  I think were somewhere between a 6-7 inch rain deficit for the year.   

Rain has been on the horizon but seems to stand in place and dissipate rapidly.  The popcorn storms form quick, drop lots of rain over a small area, then produce strong wind as they fall apart causing brief thunderstorm warnings.

This was taken looking west toward one of the warned areas.  The corn has mostly withered.
