In case you didn't hear, like many other parts of the U.S., we're having a historic drought here in southern Kansas.
I've heard that it has been the hottest summer on record so far, and couple that with the worst drought conditions since the Dust Bowl days, things are pretty fried. Including me.
However, being the eternal optimist that I try (or at least want) to be, I have decided there are some good things about this extreme summer weather. Here are the top five best things (as if there were more than five) about a drought:
(1) There is opportunity to redesign my landscape, since almost all the plants I've planted in the last year have now gone to meet their Maker.
(3) No worries over having to mow the lawn!
(4) I don't have to worry about tracking mud into the house.
(5) I get to add onto my tumbleweed collection!
