There is no moisture in the ground. The lawns are brown. Crops are struggling and/or stunted in growth. We are at least 6 inches below normal in precipitation. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Newbury 1.6 NW on 7/11/2018 Lawns are done. The grass just breaks off in your hands because the blades are so brittle. The forest floor is dangerously dry. Some trees are losing leaves. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Newbury 1.6 NW on 7/13/2018
