    Yes :(
    There is a place near me called 5 arches....because it has 5 arches where water runs form the lake under the bridge (that contain the 5 arches). Only one arch is dripping water now compared to the usual 5 that really splash it out.

    The river at the end of my road is usually around 3 foot deep, 8 foot wide. it is now about 3 foot wide and barely a few inches deep :(

    I have admittedly never seen it this low :(


    all the daffodils are dead, and the trees are dropping brown leaves :(

    We have had no rain at all for 3 weeks now. and i thought it was meant to be cooling down, it was still really hot today!!
