The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident, which everybody had decided not to see.

Drought Letting up in SW Missouri

After two weeks of pretty good rainfall, the U.S. drought monitor has lowered SW Missouri and eastern Oklahoma to D1, moderate drought. I can see many ponds filling and other good signs, however, the subsoil is still dry. I’m still going to be careful about my stocking rate in case the rains don’t continue.

The drought monitor web page has an animation of the drought maps of the 12 past weeks here. It gives a nice “movie” of the movement of the drought types across the U.S.
