Grass Is Green, But Drought Drags On
Laramie, WY – The grass may be green, but the drought drags on. That's the message this week from the state climatologist, Steve Gray.
"We have some moisture in the top few inches of the soil and it was wet enough to produce a good grass crop this year, but there are still areas where there is very little moisture down deep in the soil." Gray says reservoir levels are still far below normal, despite spring rains that made the grass turn green. The state's Drought Management Task Force said this week that everyone should conserve water - from farms to households.
