Hot, Dry and Potentially Costly Most of the nation is gripped in a dry spell the likes of which we haven't seen in decades. We've had fewer rainy days in Northeast Ohio this season than at any time since the Great Depression. There's a little rain in the forecast now, but not nearly enough to make up the deficit. Corn prices are going way up. On the farm , in your yard and in your wallet: The effect of the 2012 drought, Thursday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas. Hosted by Mike McIntyre.
