No, not T. S. Eliot!

Drought turning farms to wasteland- al.com

It’s very dry right now. We could use a hurricane or two, and who cares about Mobile? Anyway:

  • The entire state is in drought, with 60 percent in “extreme” drought.
  • Cotton and soybeans are starting to die.
  • Livestock are in distress and ponds, wells, and streams drying up.
  • There’s also only a fraction of the needed hay.
