Heading into a 4th serious year of drought. Serious fire danger and 50+ winds roughly 2x per week. Texas Panhandle area. No spring wildflowers & no weeds growing = no grass.

Our part of SW Oklahoma remains in D4 with only about 2 1/2" of moisture since September. Hope to get some substantial spring moisture this year.

It is very dry here in south eastern Oregon as in northern California, so have sold all of the stockers and sold one forth of the cow herd. Might have to dip deeper. No water from free streams to irrigate at this point

Due to lack of moisture and colder than normal temps, cool-season stuff is slow coming out of dormancy. Got good moisture on Saturday, so hope springs eternal.

Would take moisture in any form. No significant rain since November. It is trying to green up but can't do much without some soaking rain. Central Tx.

According to historical weather data, this area in TX has worst moisture in 105 years. Will need good timely rains soon...hope we will get some this weekend. Fire danger high.

We had a very dry winter here in northern Nebraska and we need a lot of moisture.

Still snow covered, but should be in great shape. Paddocks went into winter with great residual cover. Snow arrived early and deep and stayed long, we left a lot of feed on the table and couldn't get to it. Might be a slow start if it stays cool and wet.
