This weeks map will look a lot different. Tuesday(today) is the update map deadline for this Thursday's release.

We’re not in a drought, we’re in flood recovery.

Not being a SA. What factors do they consider when deciding what is or isn't a drought? Is it rain totals, aquafer totals, lake levels, etc.

Same at my place, but 5 miles to the south along the Brazos and Little Rivers they've gotten a lot of rain over the last week. Nearly every day.

In Caddo Mills (northeast Texas hunt county) we got 1 and 4/10 of an inch. Not far from us in basically every direction people got several times that much. It was weird. It was a welcome rain but we could use some more.

maybe my humor is being missed.. If you look at the map it looks like a hand with the "OK" wrist is on the New Mexico Line. Maybe Brady in the "circle"

Mostly precipitation and the amount of moisture in soil samples I think is the main measurements.

Definitely understand his post and wasn't ignoring it. The map will definitely look a lot better overall for sure. Just a few people are saying it didn't rain everywhere and that we are still needing rain in spots. I definitely need more rain.

We got less than half an inch total over the last few days here around Abilene. Really disappointing when the forecasts were saying we could get 5 inches. Just barely got enough to settle the dust for a couple of days.

So true. My son played JR High Basketball. He was the only white kid on the team. We played and all African American team. When the kids made a 3pt they would do the OK. up showing the 3pt. When my son did it they other parents went nuts saying my son was calling out white power.

They had to call time out and tell my son to not do it again.
My smart *** son shot a 3 and ran down with his arm out like Hitler with 3 fingers together turned sideways.
That is what we use as a family for read between the lines.

I'm feeling too lazy to look it up.

What is the requirement for the amount of rain needed to get out of a declared drought?
I don't think an inch of rain (if we got that yesterday) will negate the months of no rain and heat we have had.

Default 1947 - 1957 drought

My grandparents talked about the 1950ís drought
I was @ moors feed lot awhile back and MRS Moor & I where talking and she said
It didnít rain except a few drops from 1947-1957 , then it flooded for Months with out end .

A severe drought could happen again, 2011 & 2021-2022 could just be a blip in history? Letís pray we donít ever have to suffer what our parents and grandparents did,

Finally raining in parts of Menard County. Still extremely dry in southern part of the county. Lots of rain in NW part of the county.
Praying for more general rainfall across Texas.
Adios,
Gary
