The U.S. Drought Monitor indicates that much of central Illinois has been classified as being in a "moderate drought". Precipitation during the spring has only been running from about 35 to 55 percent of normal across the area.It rains here in Illinois in April, May and June. That time is about up and we haven't had much rain. I heard on the news that this was the fourth dryest Spring on record. Even under normal circumstances July and August are dry here.
Prepare for water restrictions? Prepare for new talk of the urgent need for Hunter Lake?
