Latest drought status

No changes in our drought status this week. Last Saturday's rain prevented the drought from getting worse, but didn't help improve our status. Saturday's rain is the only measurable rain received this month, which still puts us a little more than .50" below average for the month and more than 8" behind since June 1.
