Drought Situation Much Better Now

A DNR expert says the state’s drought situation has improved dramatically as we enter the winter.

Tim Hall says the drought isn’t completely gone.

Hall says the wet October was the big turning point as a dry November didn’t help.

Hall says the warmer temperatures have left the ground warmer and the door open for any moisture that falls to still be helpful.

He says any rain or snow we get now is a bonus.

Hall says the water that gets into the ground now will be key when it comes time to plant once again in the spring.
