    This needs some major rainfall.

  • Our green landscapes have turned brown. We need a nice soaking or two or three…

    My Mom said it was bad. She lives on the lake at Palo Pinto. We are not that hot yet. Haven’t reached triple digits YET. Great shot of the parched soil.

  • Thanks juju! We’re hoping for rain, but so far nothing.

    wow … Texas & Australia have so much in common. We are in our 11th year of drought conditions in S.E. Victoria & sights like this break the heart regardless of how common they now are, or where they are. Perfectly captured image of despair.

  • Wow! Thanks for that wonderful comment! I’ll pray for you there in Australia – sounds like you need water worse than we do! I can’t imagine 11 years…
