The blessings of a wet spring has turned into a dearth of rain.

In light of the dry conditions Randall County Commissioners have issued a burn ban in all unincorporated areas of the county.  The burn ban will last at least 90 days, until December 28, 2015.  This means no outdoor burning of trash and certainly no controlled burns.

The ban could be lifted earlier if the County Judge determines conditions have become safe, presumably if we get more rain or snow.

Wheeler County is also under a burn ban.
