This Is What The Government Calls “Abnormally Dry”

The Front Range of Colorado is also known as “The Land Of Perpetual Brown”

The US Drought Monitor says we are experiencing conditions ranging from abnormally dry to exceptional drought. I took this picture about an hour ago.

    Desert plants mixed in a golf green? Yea, I guess that is a drought – started about half a million years ago.

  2. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    The drought is in the honesty and integrity of the Government buffoons perpetuating this scam.

    The new enviro”mental” norm … we have all heard of CO2 dry ice … that is a CO2 dry puddle 😉 … maybe even a drought puddle.

    When your job depends on drought… what else you gonna do but find drought everywhere.

    Amazing mirage, looks just like a puddle!

      It’s probably methane hydrates melting from climate change… I can see the white foam in the puddle…

  7. Lance says:

    complete and utter devastation

    Are the Pineridge trails open now, or did you just go around the gate? Tsk tsk. 😉

  9. An observer says:

    NOAA publishes the amount of rain needed to get out of drought (this one for March):

    http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/temp-and-precip/drought/recovery.php?type=end&duration=1&curr-submitted=Submit#curr

    Fort Bend County in Texas, for one, got that amount in April. More than 9 inches. But is still listed as under “moderate drought” (not merely “abnormally dry”). Oh and 2 more inches of rain in the past 2 days. Good luck cleaning your boots if you step off the paved trail.

    Is the U.S. Drought Monitor tied to federal funding? What else would explain this lunacy?
