Monitoring & Resource List for Drought Information

Drought is real and it is costing all of us. Not having enough water is scary and it is a reality right here right now in this country. Yes, I realize many peoples around the world lack access to clean water but we have lots of people here in this country that are unaware of the water shortages we are currently facing in own agricultural fields and communities. Pure clean water is becoming harder and harder to come by for some us right here in this country. This is a reality that everyone needs to know and think about because a high percentage of our food is grown in areas that are suffering drought conditions so even if you don't live in these areas you will be affected by higher prices at the grocery store. Let's start addressing an area where a few changes can have a big effect on our household water consumption our landscapes.
