Muddy Pigs a Welcome Sight – Drought Critical

Posted by romeethredge on January 20, 2012

Muddy pigs were a welcome sight this week. We are thankful for the good rain of almost 2 inches for most of Seminole County.  The kids were walking our 4-H show pigs and they loved the mud to roll in.

USGS Streamflow map shows how low the streamflows are in Georgia. Red and Burgundy 10 % of normal flow or lower.

Drought Map shows how critical the drought is across the US.



















The USGS Groundwater graph shows that normally we get an increase in the groundwater level this time of year, shown by the gold triangles (32 year average depths to water). Our current level (blue line)is staying at about 46 feet down, that’s about 16 feet lower than normal for this time of year. We need to pray for good slow rains here and north of here.
