Another thing is making me feel like crying this morning.
People, we are burning up out here. The drought is unbelievably severe and it is taking its toll on the prairie. I don’t even remember the last time we had any measurable rain, and we have day, after day, after day of scorching temperatures. Yesterday, it was 108 degrees.
Our beans are struggling to put on a pod and even trying to fill. The will to reproduce is amazing.
Our small farm communities will suffer and the ripple effect will be great. If you are a small business owner, you understand how that works.
Your food prices will rise, and the news media is starting to make a big deal out of that. And they should.
But when you go to the grocery to purchase your cereal and milk and bread and bacon, please say a little pray for the farmer and his family who are wondering if they will still be in business next year.
