Moderate Drought

Well, it happened. Southeastern Indiana has been placed in the 'moderate drought' category. I'm sure that by next Thursday when the new update is made we will be in the 'extreme drought' category. I think the dry weather helps to perpetuate itself. As the ground becomes drier and drier it makes it that much more difficult for the atmosphere to become saturated enough for signifcant rainfall. We had a brief shower come over the house yesterday afternoon, but it was only enough to make things damp, not really wet. About five minutes after the shower, everything was dry once again.
