Heavy rain on the east coast

Post by joyceajm » Tue Sep 28, 2010 8:45 am

I would think that the recent rains - with more coming would be much needed. Isn't there a little bit of a drought starting?

You will need to wait another week. The september 28 drought index is in and it looks nearly the same as the one posted above. The big change will be on the next one.
