Watching a clip on CNN about the Western US 20 year drought, a cattle rancher interviewed paints a bleak picture if this continues one more year.

Farmers are the worst complainers ever invented. Every year is either too wet or too dry, too hot or too cold. They always cry about some big percentage of their crop lost due to weather, but if they suffered zero loss, they would cry about the market being flooded with product and prices below the cost of production.

The weather guys on the local TV stations have been crying about how far below normal precipitation has been in Michigan this year. Car show on at a museum near Kalamazoo today: been bucketing down there since I got up at 7:30 this morning. Another show on in metro Detroit today. That rain is headed this way. Car shows on next Saturday and Sunday. Rain forecast both days.
