Start Date: 9/10/2017 -  
Very dry. Ground is very hard with cracks. Grass is light green to yellow and crunchy in areas. Clay soil shrinkage continues along foundations and structures. Difficult to determine impacts (if any) to vegetation, as fall colors and leaf drop have begun. Birds and squirrels are frequent visitors to the bird bath. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Carbon Hill 3.1 N on 9/10/2017
