Start Date: 7/12/2018 -  
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has urged residents to postpone outdoor burns and to be careful with equipment, such as ATVs and mowers, due to heightened fire danger related to the dry weather. Port Huron Times Herald (Mich.), July 12, 2018 Wild animals (deer, raccoons, rabbits, birds) are draining the birdbaths at night. They are also drinking most of the water from 16" ground level animal watering pan. Have started watering the gardens due to only .33" rain since June 27th. The farmers around us are irrigating crops other than potatoes (which they always irrigate). Burning restrictions are in effect around us. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Edmore 3.8 ESE on 7/12/2018 An open burn ban is in effect for Midland County issued by the Michigan DNR. Lawns are very dry and browning. Daily watering has done little to alleviate this problem. Gardens need daily watering and are showing signs of stress CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Midland 1.5 NNE on 7/19/2018
