North Texas

We are 22 inches below in rainfall for the past 12 months. Cattle are having a hard time finding anything to graze on. These steers look fat enough so the rancher must be feeding them hay.Hay is scarce too now.The lakes are 15-18 feet below normal levels. We have a lake near us and it was shocking last weekend to see how low the water level really is. This is a little river that feeds into the lake and usually its way up the banks. The water is usually NOT green.
