This headline sez it all: "U.S. Declares the Largest Natural Disaster Area Ever Due to Drought." That's pretty bad. Note:
The entire states of Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and New Mexico (save two counties in TX and NM), are still in drought... as is most of the southwest and Deep South. I've never seen it this bad in my lifetime; I've only seen pictures of the Dust Bowl years, when it was worse. Let's hope it doesn't get THAT bad again.
