I have heard that every drought is broken by a flood. It certainly happened on my place in Montague County. We had a 4 or 5 year drought. My 1.5 acre tank was down to about 1/4 to 1/3 acre and my 1/3 acre one was down to dang near nothing. 3 or 4 smaller ones were dust. A spring fed creek that had never gone dry dried up. I lost a lot of old growth oaks and big cedars. Cows were worth nothing in my area and I dumped mine. Then, about 3 years ago we got an 8 inch flood. Tanks filled and I restocked fish. Wildlife rebounded nicely. We've been getting good rains ever since. I got over 5 inches a couple of days ago. My roads through the place have washed out and I have a lot of work to do. I know it can't last and the droughts will return.
I know how tough it is to be patient but sooner or later it always happens.
One thing I don't understand is the lack of end of summer rains. They came up from the Gulf of Mexico. For years we got big rains about the end of August the screwed up dove season. That hasn't happened in the last 15 to 20 years.
Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.
