    Drought

    It looks like another dry year. Is anyone not planning to garden this year due to drought? The thought has crossed my mind.

    the models I've seen do not anticipate drought conditions for Ohio, or indeed, east of the Mississippi, overall. Flood risk for Ohio is predicted to be minor, also. Not that I'm in a flood prone area, but looks like there won't be too many deluges. So my planting plans remain in the "as usual" category.

    We have been shocked up where I live on the lake at how low it is this time of the spring. When the ice melts the lake swells to within about 50 yards of the house, but it hasn't even breached the mid-summer shoreline yet.

    The University of Nebraska-Lincoln drought monitor maps the severity and impacts of drought. Commentary includes discussion of recent rainfall and 5-7 day forecasts of changing drought conditions.
