A view of Madison Wisconsin

Wisconsin state capital
We recently took a family trip to Madison, Wisconsin to tour the university located there.

Sunset and sailboats at Lake Mendota, Madison, WI
Unfortunately it is located in half of the nation's area impacted by a drought.  They have had only 0.31 inches of rain since June 1st.  So while Lake Mendota (pictured right) is still looking pretty, most of the land is bone dry.  Agricultural experts have indicated they need two to three inches of rain in the coming week in order to avoid the total loss of their corn crop.
