For Part of Houston the Drought is Over

(Eric Berger/Houston Chronicle)
The remainder of the county remains in a moderate-to-severe drought, and most of the rest of the state, except for coastal southern Texas and west Texas, continues to make a modest recovery from the worst one-year drought on record.

It’s been a long, dry ride. The entire county has been in at least a “moderate” drought since March 1 of last year, and spent much of 2011 in an exceptional drought, the worst and most rare kind.

Glad it’s over and I hope the rains keep coming this spring and summer, when we need them most for growing, greening and drinking. Unfortunately that’s far from certain. (Source: Houston Chronicle)
