Are parts of the US still suffering drought? there is not much on the news about it.
Apparently quite a large area is still experiencing a drought:
Yes, Texas went back into drought for 38% of the state whereas a few months ago the rain had erased the previous several years of drought the 100+ degree temps brought it back. I think California is also suffering with many farms using up precious ground water to irrigate.
What time frame?
9 States still in severe drought.
It seems odd how it is just parts of some states.
Well, I can tell you for sure that South Carolina isn't at the moment
EDIT: my apologies to the people of SC, who probably do NOT think that's funny.
This is Mt. Hood. It's been like this since the start of summer.
Personally the CA drought hasn't affected me one bit. No one seems to be doing anything different in the way they use water.
Isn't that that problem ? /
Exactly. That's one of the main reasons why CA is HAVING a drought.
Below is a picture I took of Yosemite falls two weeks ago. Some imagination required.

The drought is pretty strong in the western and southern US, however, some parts of the eastern US are getting record flooding.
America is big, what is it 4 time zones, i guess it is not unusual to have drought in one part and floods in another.
Beautiful picture Russ, it seems with all the rivers drying up and the snow caps melting parts of America have a near time grim future.
With El Nino rising, California's drought is expected to be diminished or end in the next year.
Yea, bring on the rain. We need a monster (but mild) Pineapple Express in the PNW.
