Dust Bowl: The Sequel

Here are some pictures I took one year ago. They're from July of '10. We had a nice long rain, little expecting that it would be the last we'd see for a long time. This is our little creek at flood stage, facing first east, and then west.

Here is the same creek today. This is what a year of drought can do in western Oklahoma. We desperately need rain. It's only a minor inconvenience for some of us, but for the farmers the situation is critical. You can only haul so much water to so many cows before you start selling what you can.
