Eight millimeters

I was talking with a farmer yesterday who reported the official rain amounts for June.

The lowest amount recorded in the hundred plus years of keeping records here was eleven millimeters.
This June we saw 8 millimeters.

And that's why this years crops in this region look to be a, forgive me, washout.

I saw another farmer turning over his empty field today. It's not at all pretty around here, crop wise.
