Here, In the Desert Southeast...

We're drying up down here!
[T]he Southeast is wilting under one of the most severe droughts in its history.

•How bad is it? About 26 percent of the Southeast faces "exceptional" drought — the worst category. Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and Florida have had less rain than at any time since records began in 1894.
It's so bad, the Jack Daniel's distillery may have to close down for lack of spring water.

I was reading earlier today that Atlanta has between 90 and 110 days of drinking water left. Now that's scary.



For once, we're not in a drought around here. But it hasn't rained to speak of in several weeks now.
