We all know we've had a dry spell, but going into this dry stretch we had some pretty good rainfall earlier in the year. So we're not desperate for widespread rain, but we certainly could use it. Here's the latest Drought Monitor (click here) from the US Department of Agriculture. It shows abnormally dry conditions from around St. Louis and south. And a moderate to severe drought in the Missouri boot heel. This will be updated as we continue to see dry weather through the weekend. Out next chance for rain is Monday and Tuesday.
