As climate change bites in America’s midwest, farmers are desperate to ring the alarm:

“When I was a kid, my dad would say an inch of rain was a good rain. That’s just what we needed. Now we get four inches, five inches, six inches in one sustained wet spell that lasts two or three days. I don’t ever remember that as a boy. I’ve never seen the sustained wetness in the land that we have now. Even though the river hasn’t gone on the land it’s raised the water table so that the rains that we’ve had this fall, which have been unusually heavy, make it muddy. Continually muddy,” he said.

Getting in practice for the Arizona monsoon, Gene shot some lightning last night on a severe thunderstorm in Hodgeman County, KS. Here is one a quite a few good shots!

Ridge is apparent but today is the worst of it. Tell your bosses you’ll be at the pool this afternoon and you’ll see em in the evening!
