Oh How I Wish It Would Rain

Thank God for the rain last night!

This summer has brought to mind the Temptations' 1967 hit song.

However, this is no joke.  Here are just a few horrendous stories about the drought.  Please add yours in comments below.

* In the dead of night, people are leaving their horses at farms that have hay because they can't feed them.

* Farmers who raise hay are storing it because they know there will be a shortage this winter to feed animals and they can command a higher price.

* Farmers will be faced with selling off or slaughtering livestock because they won't have enough hay or grain to feed them.

* Hundreds of acres of corn in southwest Michigan are burned and wasted.

* Before it rained last week southwest Michigan went 40 days without rain.
