Here in MD we are getting lots and lots of rain. Aside from one period this summer where we went about 10 days without rain, I think it has rained at least every 3 days all summer long, often we get rain 3-4 days in a row.

But I recall the years when we couldn't get appreciable rain for weeks on end and crops withered in the fields.

But on average we get an average amount of rainfall.....

Now this is interesting.

Looks like people marked stones when the water level was low indicating hard times.

Reminds me of the Japan Tsunami markers they found in the hills that indicated how far the water got to after past Tsunamis.

Droughts across Europe has caused hidden messages carved on rocks to warn of 'hard times ahead' to reappear.

Known as 'hunger stones', they are reappearing in the Elbe River.

Over a dozen of the hunger stones, chosen to record low water levels, can now be seen in and near the northern Czech town of Decin near the German border.

On other rivers, hunger stones go back to the 15th century, and inscriptions from 1417, 1473, 1616, 1654 and 1666 have been found.

I think I saw on news that this year's record is 63 days over +25C which is a damn lot, almost double than normal. Usually weather like that I consider too hot already, this year my personal record was when car temp gauge showed +38C while driving in city and I believe the whole July was officially around +30C, official measuring spots usually record little lower temps.

Combine that with almost no rain at all and you get forest fires and dead crops.

Here in Western MT we've now broken our all time records for most days with no rain two years in a row. Luckily we didn't have the fire season this year that we did last year despite even drier conditions.
