Looking around East Texas you can tell it's been quite a while since some areas have seen a decent amount of rainfall to sustain green vegetation. Seeing how the land in parts of the state are so dry, some county commissioners and courts have issued temporary burn bans for their counties.
Last week portions of East Texas received some much needed rain after a dry and hot July and first half of August. Prior to the cool front and rain, pretty much all of East Texas was under a burn ban except for a few far northern counties.
Our lawns, pastures and open lands are in a desperate need of rain right now. Parts of East Texas welcomed the rain yesterday, thanks to a weak cold front that passed through the area, but the little rain that fell didn't really help out the drought condition many parts of East Texas are facing.
