    I do believe that the summer weather is behind us and soon we will be complaining about the cold weather. It seems we never can be satisfied; it is too hot, too cold, too rainy or too dry. I agree the drought we had this summer has hurt the pocket books of many who had so much invested in planting crops, only to get little yield in return. Everything we buy this winter that requires corn or wheat to produce will be costly, because of the shortage.
