The Time It Never Rained

The Time It Never Rained

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the drought and it’s impact across the State. Here is a more detailed report that illustrates just how bad it’s been, how much it’s cost (so far), and outlines some of the plans to deal with water issues in the future. Click here for the link

Regardless of which side of the global warming issue you’re on, this drought is bad.  It may be the worst one on record, but that’s not to say we haven’t had our share of “dry spells” in the past.  One of my neighbors, the late Elmer Kelton, wrote about the drought of the 50’s and it’s impact on the people and the land he knew so well. You can pick up his book here. It’s worth the read.
