92/365 Teasing with the threat of rain

It. Is. Dry.

Dry, dry, dry. August ended up as the driest on record for central Indiana, as we got only 0.37 inches of rain over the whole month. That hurts! The grass is brown, my garden has certainly suffered, and events are being canceled (like fireworks) because of it. We're not technically experiencing drought conditions, but you can see on this state drought monitor that it won't take much more of this to push us into that category.

We've had a couple days here and there during which clouds have rolled in and teased us with the threat of rain -- including this day last week when I made this photograph -- but it hasn't amounted to anything at my house.

I sure hope this breaks soon! Have you been experiencing the same thing? Have you had to do anything to make up for the lack of rain?

Camera: Canon 40D, 1/125s, f/5.6 at ISO 100 at about 6:00 p.m.
