Describes the situation here, as well. You walk outside and the humidity 
is god-awful and the ground is baked dry. The last two days we have had 
impressive thunder storms all around us, but not a drop of rain. 

Everybody's garden is starting to look pooped. The lilies are terrible 
this year, the Joe Pye Weed is already in full bloom (normally not seen in 
flower until late August). Everything is confused and confounded.
