Before today's topic, let's briefly update the area's drought status. Remember this is through 7 a.m. Tuesday, Aug.13. The no drought area has moved into the eastern third or so of the county (and even in to Stafford County). The abnormally dry area is the middle third and the western quarter is in moderate drought. And this doesn't reflect any rains after 7 a.m. this past Tuesday. Last year at this time we were pretty much at the highest or next to highest drought severity rating. What a difference a year makes.
