Exceptional Drought to persist


Disappointingly, the weather service indicates that our drought in Central Texas will persist at least through next March. The Farmer’s Almanac tells me it will continue all the way through next summer, though we might get some relief through the remnants of a hurricane or two.

The Weather Service has currently given Central Texas an “exceptional” drought rating, which is the most severe rating they offer. Central Texas is currently the only location in the entire country that has such a severe designation. We gardeners could have told you that already, but it is nice to have verification. What isn’t nice, though, is that it is going to persist for many more months. My new plants may never flourish in the manner in which they could have in a normal year; the roots may be permanently affected. Oh well, life in the Texas outdoors is nothing if not unpredictable.
