That the Panhandle and Cimarron County are under drought conditions, isn’t news to anyone. However, with four months gone and a total of .53 inches of moisture on record, the county has a good chance to be one of the driest on record. Take note that 1956 is the worst on record with 6.31 inches, and 1934 and 35 during the dustbowl we got 8.62 and 9.69 inches. If the rainfall stays consistent throughout 2008, we will have an estimated 2.12 inches. Also included are two N.O.A.A. maps which indicate we are in for a long haul, moisture-wise.
