My Mama taught me to always try and find something good in anything bad. Your's probably did, too. (I think it's part of some kind of Mama's Code of Rasin' Kids. Maybe it's in a Handbook they use. I asked SWMBO. She won't answer me. She just smiles. Or is that a smirk?)
A dendrologist (That's a tree scientist. Consider that your Word of the Day), says the drought will give us some outstanding fall foliage displays this year. I'm not sure about the timing, but I've noticed some colorful examples already.
