Very dry most lawns are dead with little hope of recovery if it rains. Hills have been brown all summer but not many fires. Many trees have died over the summer or have suffered many dead limbs in live trees. Water rates are extremely high and water quality is not what it used to be. With the arrival of fall the temperatures seem to be cooling.

No real change to the report this week. We have had milder high temperatures and more dry wind than before but that's about the only thing to report this week. I have noticed that aspen colors are variable this year. Those on our place turned color but were more dull than usual while in other areas not too far away the colors are brighter. In general, in my travels the aspen colors are brighter on the east side of the Continental divide. I'm not sure why that is, but we did have a very dry summer overall in this general area, so maybe that had a little to do with it.

For the period of 9/17 to 9/23. 0.01" rain fell at my location.The least amount in a week for the summer. At the beginning of the week drier air. Morning lows in the mid-to upper 60's as well getting more humid. Grasses and plants are starting to need watering. Water has receded from previously flooded areas near my location.

What a difference a week makes. Last weekend we were doing dirt work and there was no evidence of moisture to at least 2' deep. Since then we have had 1.86" of slow steady rain over several days. No runoff or ponding. All the water is soaking straight in. Some of the plants that hadn't died have started perking up a bit.  
9/23/2017  IL-HY-6 ILHenry Moderately Dry Agriculture
Only 0.41 inch of rain for the week. Soil moisture levels continue to deteriorate. Creeks and streams continue to stop running and dry up for longer lengths. Water flow from field drainage tiles has has completely stopped. Unseasonably high temperatures has accelerated the maturing and drying of corn and soybeans. As crops dry down, field fire danger will increase. Areas of dry and brown grass in pastures has remained constant in size during the past week.

grass is brown, and for the most part dormant. Leaves have already started falling off tress, absent of color. Most plants have already shriveled due to lack of rain

Although we had a lot of moisture through July, we have had very little rain since the beginning of August. Last major rain (August 16) came so hard and fast it mostly ran off, and we have only had about 1/2" since then. Ground is cracked, grass is drying up...have mowed once a week since May, now only have to occasionally mow areas that are shaded. Even perennials showing stress. My 4 rain barrels have been empty for weeks now. Some of our farmer friends are complaining that bean yields may be affected. I am worried that my new evergreens won't get enough moisture to protect them this winter.  
9/23/2017  IL-WL-63 ILWill Severely Dry General Awareness
Grass looks as if it's been burnt, shrubs require constant watering, and trees are shedding their leaves far earlier than is the norm. I'm seriously worried what permanent damage this hot, dry month is inflicting on our yard.

An inch and a half of rainfall maintained the ground moisture. The house sump pump has activated occasionally indicating good moisture deep in the ground. All plants look healthy while acknowledging that they are sensing the reduced daylight and that fall is here.

No significant precipitation since 9/7. Surface of lawns and fields started greening up but now are turning more brown. primary reason for change to moderately dry is very dry subsoil. Did some digging to plant trees this week and below the sod soil was very dry.

Weather has turned very warm this week, with highs in the 90's, the highest temps we've has since July. We got a little rain, but plants and the soil is drying out very rapidly in the heat, and predicted rainfall for the next ten days is very low. Much more watering will be needed, and trees are starting to drop brown, crispy leaves without the color changing.

It's been more dry than wet over the past week, even with Jose sitting off Cape Cod and stirring up the Atlantic. We missed most of the leftovers of Irma here. We will be In the 80s the next couple days, so expecting the falling leaves will increase the fire chances if we don't get some rain.

The leaves are not changing color so much as they are drying out and falling, and a LOT of them are falling now. This may be a result of the strong cold front that passed through just before the remnants of Hurricane Irma came into the area, combined with the absence of precipitation for over a week now. Streams are running a bit lower than last week, and the grass is getting slightly brown and stiff.

7-day rainfall 0.41 which is below normal.September rainfall 2.57 which is near normal. However, most of that fell Labor Day weekend from the remains of Hurricane Harvey. Since then, weekly rainfall has been below normal with mostly lighter rains which have led to limited percolation. Recent abnormally hot weather is increasing drying rates greatly. With overall 2017 rainfall well above normal, vegetation is still green, greener than normal for this time of year. Patches of grass are turning brown and some individual plants are starting to look dry. Newer plants are definitely in need of water at this point. Little rain is in the forecast with continued unseasonable heat.  
9/23/2017  OH-HR-11 OHHuron Mildly Wet Plants & Wildlife
There has been rain this summer frequently enough to keep the grass green and lush. We don't water our grass and we garden organically, so we don't apply herbicides or chemical fertilizers. We have mowed weekly all summer. With warmer days and nights, tomatoes are ripening well. New plantings have thrived. Monarch caterpillars have been munching on the Swamp Milkweed for some weeks and are present today. Swamp Milkweed aphids showed up, too, and did some damage because we didn't want to disturb the Monarchs. For the first time I can recall, white aphids were munching on a tomato plant and what looked like potato beetles were munching on a Joe Pye Weed. We had a praying mantis and some toads and tree frogs. It has been necessary to water the flowers and vegetables once or twice a week this summer in between rainfall.

After watering the lawn last weekend the early week brought some nice rain. I left a couple of spots unwatered for comparison. Bermuda and fescue have greened up nicely and crepe myrtles, roses and small ornamentals show no signs of stress. Turf growth pretty normal so mowing requirements have increased from the past few weeks. Tomatoes have some dry curl on some leaves but not bad; fruit looks great. Warm temps well into the evening have inhibited outdoor activities. Soil under mulch and sod cool and palpably damp, irrigated areas only slightly more so than non. Soil is nicely frangible and workable, not dry and hard as before. Could have gone "near normal" but decided on "mildly dry" given the overall situation and time of year. Next week's forecast looks wet to start out so we'll see what develops.

We have received .04 inches of rain since my last report, so nothing has changed, still moderately dry. Dust may be settled from .03 inches this morning, but ground is still hard, dry and cracked. Grasses and even hearty weeds are brown and dead looking. Established OLD red oak trees are starting to change colors in their leaves as a result of the stress from this drought. A certainty it is not the result of cold weather as they typically need more than the 50's we experienced overnights in the days after Hurricane Harvey. Medina River USGS gauge at Patterson Street is at 3.94 ft. this morning versus 3.96 ft this time last week.

with only 0.18" rain recorded this month and above 90 temps things are looking more normal at the ranch. levels of stock ponds are slowly dropping. vegetation is still green but growth has slowed. Anacau and kidney wood trees are in full bloom, and wildflowers are thick across the ranch which is not normal here for Sept. mowed pastures this week and found no damp, soft spots. cattle have plenty of grass to eat. many of the grasses have seeded out and a good crop of bugs in the pastureso so lots of food for birds and wildlife. hummingbirds are still migrating thru and can still find flowers to feed on
