Cracking up

It's been uncharacteristically dry this summer. You can see it in the dirt road out back where long cracks, several centimeters deep in places, have appeared like little rifts along an active fault line. I lived in California for a time and saw larger versions of this. Thankfully, shifting tectonic plates are not the cause here. Just dry dirt.

I prefer the road this way than to the muddy mess it often is.

That said, we are expecting rain tomorrow. After an unseasonably hot day today, a weather system is predicted to push in off the Atlantic and bring us rain and dramatically lower temperatures. I dare say it will feel like fall.
