Drought could be worse this year

   The historic drought that laid waste to Aerica's grain and corn best is unlikely to ease before the middle of this year, a government forecast warned last week.

   The annual spring outlook from the National Ocianic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting hotter, drier conditions across much of the US, including parts of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas, where farmers have been fighting to hang on to crops of winter wheat.

   Last year, according to the report, produced several record weeks in a row of 100+ degree days.

That's the same thing Teflon Tom said two weeks ago. Is he one of those global warming alarmist?
Price of beef should drop when the ranchers cull their herds.
Where's all that Calaveras County Water District agricultural development water discussed in the Integrated Regional Water Management Plan or was that in the Housing Element or the LAFCO Final Report? It wasn't discussed during the JOBS study session.
