Everything from breakfast cereal to roast beef will cost more as a result of the worst drought in 24 years, which has already prompted authorities to declare more than 1,000 counties in 26 states -- nearly two-thirds of land in the lower 48 states, stretching from Nevada to South Carolina -- natural disaster areas.

Every once in a while, we get summers like this. I remember a summer in the late 90s in which we had several triple-digit days in Detroit, and about a month of over 90 degree weather. Today's possible high is 100, but it won't be the record high for Detroit on this day. I'm just grateful I have a/c this time around.

Anything associated with corn is going through the roof this year. I saw thousands of acres of it that will not be worth the harvesting cost.
