Plants & Wildlife
Broome County, NY

Start Date: 10/22/2017 -  
In the past weeks there has been little rain. Particularly in the past 5 days we have had nothing but drying clear skies. Vegetation is drying up, leaves are falling off trees without much color change and the creeks have gotten very low like usual August levels. There should be some deeper ground moisture remaining from the very rainy summer we had but I expect it will be drying up too unless we get some significant precipitation soon.
