Summer Drought 

The maple trees in our neighborhood have started dropping their dry, but still green leaves. Where Fall brings leaves ready to go back to the earth, these seem like casualties of a very long, hot, dry summer. It makes me worried for our urban ecosystem.

It’s 100 degrees in Portland before July…this seems to be happening with increasing frequency.
