Phew it's HOT!
Like many other people in Canada, and indeed in the northern hemisphere, 2012 has been a very warm year. Record droughts, corn crops lost, water restrictions as plants dry up and die...it's been hard in many places. Nova Scotia has been very warm with less rain than usual but our rivers, streams and lakes are still ok. The water levels are definitely dropping but so far nobody seems too worried. We did get some rain last week which was good for the lawns and veggies but the heat continues.
