One year ago, East Texas was in the grip in one of our hottest Summers and worse droughts on record.  In fact, the drought lasted through October and forecasters told us it would take a few years for ponds and lakes to recover.  What a difference a year makes.

More specifically, half a year; from November through May we received enough heavy rainfall to bring most of our lakes to near full pond.

And the rain has been a regular visitor so far this Summer, but what is the outlook for the 2nd half of the season?

According to the Climate Prediction Center things look pretty good through September.  East Texas looks to be getting enough rainfall to keep us relatively moist.  However, the central and western part of the state may not be so lucky.  And, unfortunately, it looks like the drought-stricken Midwest will be in for more heat and dry conditions.

Keep the prayers going!!
