Well it finally rained today. It was great. Cooled down the high temperature.
Conditions in southeast Louisiana have been deteriorating since October. In fact, the first five months of the year have been the second-driest on record in Louisiana -- after 1963 -- in the 121 years of record-keeping by the state climatological office.
The lack of significant rainfall combined with the intense heat during the past two weeks has pushed some parts of southeast Louisiana into severe drought status and others into extreme drought (my area).
They are giving a chance of rain again tomorrow. I sure hope so.
