The National Weather Service has been tracking rainfall levels since 1880. After all that time, this July set the record for being the driest July ever.
We met up with Roxanne Williams with City Sprouts in Omaha. She says the lack of rain has almost destroyed their urban farm. For example, their green beans are less than two inches long. They should be four to five inches long.
"It is very depressing and the combination with the heat makes it difficult to work outside because it is demoralizing," Williams said.
Like many, Williams is not optimistic conditions will improve.
