Off the ice. Still on the road. This will take some processing.
Kegorator in the middle of that field and BOOM! You’re set!
So THAT”S where all the Arctic Sea Ice went!

The Midwest Drought in 16 seconds:
Andrew Freedman of Climate Central has this to say:
“As of August 7, about 78 percent of the U.S. was experiencing some form of drought conditions. This was a stunning reversal of fortune from just a few months earlier, when it looked like corn growers were going to have an historically large harvest and drought was limited to the southern tier of the country. Scientists trace the drought’s origins to a combination of factors, ranging from La Niña conditions in the Pacific Ocean, which tend to favor drought in the U.S., to a very mild winter that left little snowpack to help keep soils moist in the spring. Massive heat waves brought blistering heat during March, June and July, turbocharging the process of evaporating water out of soils and plants, and leading to what meteorologists call a “flash drought.” Rather than develop gradually, as is more typical with drought conditions, this drought came on with stunning swiftness.
“Climate outlooks for the August through October period call for above-average temperatures and below-average precipitation to persist across parts of the drought region, particularly the Midwest, which has been particularly hard-hit so far.”
The BBC has a story of the survival of a man who fell into a crevasse:
He’s one tough old codger, eh?
