The brown leaf tips look familiar, unfortunately.
We are only a little over 7" of rain for the year, no meaningful precipitation since mid May, about two inches total since mid-April. Desperately hoping to catch some rain early Friday morning, as there is nothing else in the 10 day forecast. At this point I believe we are well behind 2012's moisture, our last drought year (40 bushel corn, 15 bushel beans on ground that normally does 190 and 55)
By no means is the Fat Lady singing. The orchestra is starting to tune up their instruments though.
