Dry spell Cornwall Ontario..

It's actually a drought..

The grass here seems browner and dryer than normal.. Some of the small trees have their leaves curling up and turning brown.. It rained for a few minutes just before dawn, I wonder if this is going to be normal as the climate changes..

Apparently north america is going through a huge drought. I expect if it continues much longer there soon will be bans on lawn watering..
