Report Heat Wave June/July 2012 in Off Topic Posted August 9, 2012 Well the summer has hit hard on Northwest Ohio. It was a sad year for my uncle to start farming. His crops haven't done so well, lost some of his soybeans but still has crops. I feel sorry for him. Some farmers lost everything. Corn wasn't tall either.And when we were drivin' up there, we saw quite a bit of brown grass. It was really sad to see.
