PHOTO We’re drying up!

The few lakes that we have in West Texas are all drying up due to the drought. We have only received 0.16″ this year when our average is around 4.5″ by this time of year.

This playa, located in Andrews is almost dry. The wildlife has moved on to other areas for the most part.

I read somewhere that the Alabama tornados were a $6 billion disaster. The drought and wildfires in Texas is expected to exceed that amount.
