Then the Rains Stopped

For months it was rain and rain and rain.

It was the topic of conversation as farmers waited to plant fields, as I planted potatoes in May, as the hay fields awaited cutting.

Sometime all of the rain stopped.

The garden plants wilt in the afternoon heat. The grass stops growing.

I wonder at what point we switched from fretting about rain to worrying about dryness.
