Not to worry it'll all even out

The first four weeks after I planted my soybeans it rained 12 inches and it was cold.  Now its been 21 days with no rain and temps in the 80's.  An old farmer once told me that if you stood  with one foot in a bucket of ice water and the other foot in a bucket of boiling water you should be perfectly comfortable.

At what point can I start complaining about drought?

21 days without rain and 80 deg, consider yourself lucky.   Even if you had used 1/2 inch per day, you've still got a few more days. 

 On the other hand,  We've still got the rain and cold.

Too little rain will scare you.  Too much rain will kill you.
