Even though we got a touch of rain the other evening it's still pretty dry.  It almost seems like repeating yourself every time you say it.  And the USDA agrees.

Not only has the drought taken away our fireworks but it is stripping the land of cotton and cattle.

Loses could top 2006 records of $4.1 billion.
