It seems absurd and kind of boggles the mind, but who would have thought a couple of months ago given the insanely wet winter and spring this year that we’d find ourselves officially listed on the U.S. Drought Monitor as “abnormally dry?”  That is the situation that the majority of our viewing area finds itself […]
