Usually the heat wave hits in time for the Helen Keller Festival, cools off a little, then hits again during the W.C. Handy Music Festival. This year, it hit in May with very little rain until the end of June. We have been seeing August weather. Some of the corn crop is stunted and shriveled up with very little chance of a good yield. Other areas seemed to catch most of the rain and looks like it will be a bumper crop. Wheat has been combined, and soybeans are coming up through the stubble.

Thanks for visiting and commenting Dave. With Muscle Shoals being the hit capital of the world in the 60's, a lot of the musicians are still here and still making good music. A lot of natives here don't appreciate nor realize how lucky we are.

Mary, you always have the best festivals in your area. I suppose their are similar cultural events in my area but I'm just not a festival goer. About the only one that I attend is the Mother Earth Fair in Topeka. It's mostly just to connect with some of the GRIT and Mother Earth bloggers. I do like the speakers there and actually pick up a new thought or two from them. It's a great get away for me once a year to be refreshed and rejuvenated. ***** Have a great festival summer day.
