Lake Ahquabi (along with many other trails in the Des Moines Metro) certainly will enjoy the week of sunshine and lower/dry temps this week. I have not been able to do any work out at Ahquabi this month due to the amount of rainfall and soggy conditions. 13.98 inches recorded in Indianola for the month of June. That's a lot of liquid for clay soil to absorb.
I'm hoping July brings the more traditional drying period leading into August to get things in shape. It will be a jungle due to the rain requiring lots of mowing, trimming and work. Look for some work dates to be scheduled if anyone is interested in helping me out to prepare things for August 15th.
