Rain, rain, everywhere. Well, maybe not everywhere, but for sure in the CSRA.
Some people, in jest, have said that it has been raining so much that frogs are knocking at the door, asking to come in and dry off a while. Some have reported seeing the mosquitos wearing snorkels.
Last year, the area and much of the south were in severe drought conditions. In McDuffie County, many were disturbed because the drought meant low lake levels and dangerous boating conditions.
According to the USDA, the most severe and extensive drought in at least 25 years seriously affected U.S. agriculture, with impacts on the crop and livestock sectors and with the potential to affect food prices at the retail level.
