Drought Looks To Be Over For Now?

After the last week or so, I am again reminded of the DU rep at the TOWA conference in Corpus last February, who told us that climate scientists were certain Texas was in for 30 -40 YEARS more of drought! I thought it rather prophetic that it was raining outside the hotel as he spoke to us. This morning’s weather shows the entire state of Texas under a flash flood watch, as well as all of Louisiana,and parts of Mississippi, Oklahoma, and a lot of the remaining Southeast US. North Texas went from severe drought to severe flooding in a matter of hours.

This game cam shot shows over a foot of water on what is normally dry land. No, that isn’t SUPPOSED to be a fish feeder!

With apologies to Johnny Cash, this is normally dry land, over a foot deep in the picture.

The pigs are rather happy the drought is over!
