1. a period of dry weather, especially a long one that is injurious to crops.
2. an extended shortage: a drought of good writing.
3. Archaic . thirst.
This ground is thirsty. So, very thirsty. I took these pictures where Sunshine has soccer practice. She practices on a field next to a school playground. These cracks were in the grassy area between the play structures. Where kids play. Little kids. You could lose a whole kid in these cracks...or at least lose a foot/leg and end up with broken bones. It's crazy.
The ground pulling away from the parking area.
This poor tree is without leaves, but this time of year it should be full of life!
