That does not help the folks that this affects but it is not the end. The more climate changes the more it stays the same. We lose lots of crop here due to flooding but that is likely worse.

In the drier areas is there much for ground water for wells or how do they water stock? We can see our ground water change a lot from wetter years to drier times. Reply With Quote
