Yes, I hate hearing people whine about drought but guess what, I don't have a lawn left to mow and we're not going to ship more cows off to market until Monday so I'm going to do it any way. South and Central Texas is quickly becomming a desert. Yes, there are other dry spots but for reference, there is nowhere else in the United States that is even classified D3 other than the areas surrounding the current D4 area of South/Central Texas.
I'm going to start refering to the size of the D4 (the highest drought classification used by the Dept. of Ag) area in Texas by which state it's larger than. Last week, it was the size of Indiana. This week, it's passed up Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
