Like many other parts of the country, Wisconsin has been in a drought all summer. Scorching heat and dead grass everywhere you look has taken away a lot of the joy of summer for me. Especially knowing that so many farmers around the state are suffering catastrophic losses.
But this week has brought several rain storms that have finally helped turn things green again. Last night Matteo and I went for a ride and stopped at a few playgrounds along the way. This was our first stop, at Yahara Park, and for the first night in a long time it felt like summer is supposed to feel – green, breezy, and relaxed.
