Silver lining: Northeast drought benefits some businesses

FILE — Hay farmer Milan Adams stands in a dry hay field near a wind sock, in Exeter, R.I., Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2022. Adams said in prior years it rained in the spring. This year, he said, the dryness started in March, and April was so dry he was nervous about his first cut of hay. Arid conditions in the northeastern U.S. have benefited amusement parks, minor league baseball teams, construction contractors and other businesses that need warm, dry weather to attract paying customers and get jobs completed on time.
