The month of June, in Illinois, broke the record for the most rainfall in June since 1902. It was also the second wettest month of all-time since September 1926. Illinois wasn't the only state with a high level of rainfall in June. The weather has been unseasonably cool and we hope summer will arrive soon.
One thing the rain did was grow the biggest hydrangea's EVER! The hydrangea's in my yard have never been this big in the 6 years I've lived here. The corn fields have also surpassed the old saying, "knee high by the 4th of July". It seems like we may have corn coming out of our ears this year.
The not so good part of all this rain is the flooding. Many homes and natural areas were flooded and some are still recovering. The trails at Starved Rock State Park were closed for a bit and some of the other parks around that area are still closed due to flooding. And, the one thing none of us want is the swarm of mosquitos all this water brings with it. Be sure to use that bug spray!
