Yep, it's mighty dry here. I've only had 2 1/4 inches of rain since the first of Oct. last year. Stock tanks and creeks are dry and rivers are hurting too. Llano which is just north and west of Austin gets their water from the Llano River which has dried and they're having to truck in drinking water. As you can see on the map in the link most of the state is either in extreme or exceptional drought conditions. Here, 20 miles east of Ding Dong, Texas we're in the exceptional drought rating. Don't like to wish any bad weather on the people on the coast but we could use a hurricane to bring in some rain. Regional Drought Monitor: South

I'm thinking something like that is what it will take to get this weather to change back to near normal, Ronnie. Thanks for the link.

We have had some bad droughts "so I thought", almost no crops & all, but NOTHING to the extremes you guys are going through down there. I sure hope something changes for the good down there, and SOON!
