Rain can certainly not be counted on either. A few storms looked like they were heading for the course, then the mysterious invisible dome repelled them, and they missed us to the south.

When temperatures are this hot, root growth in cool season turf will be virtually non-existent, and the best we can do is try to maintain the existing root system. In a "normal" year, we see the greatest root growth in the spring, followed by a decline in the summer. It seems quite likely that this July will accelerate that root loss.
