This drought is so sad! The hygienist who cleaned my teeth this week told me they’ve had cows forever had just sold them all off on Monday. Almost everyone here has had to get rid of their livestock and some that have the desire and the funds have sent some of their best stock to farmers in other states to raise til the situation gets better here. I surely hope it happens soon.
This is a picture of the lake I had taken off my deck and posted on September 6.
This is what it looked like yesterday from my deck . . a bit over three weeks later.
Not sure how easy it is to see from the photos but the water is dropping amazingly quickly considering that lake is our area’s only water supply. By referencing the little boat dock with the red roof, it might help to see how much farther the water has gone out. I don’t know if anyone is still drinking the water. It doesn’t stink terribly but it doesn’t smell good. I have a hard time even taking a shower in it some days. We were at Wal-Mart yesterday and there was no bottled water on the shelves at all.
We do have rain in our 15 day forecast and I pray it does rain here and it rains enough to make a difference!
