Despite our mighty dancing at the Rain Dance this past Saturday, not a drop has been felt. Critters & Crayons blog shot some awesome photos and wrote about it.

My friend and reader submitted the following sad photo. She states that because the levels in her water tanks are dropping drastically and the heat is so intense, the catfish are dying off :(. The carrion is attracting vultures and other critters.
