We have not talked a lot about this, but West Texas is in the midst of the worst drought in on record. At this point, it is worse than the Dust Bowl. Pretty much all the ranchers have had to liquidate the herd, as feed is unavailable and unafordable. This picture is of a lake nearby, the O.C. Fisher Lake, and it shows that the lake is now completely dry, save for one small little puddle.
If you look closer at the red puddle of water, you can see it is filled with dead fish.
These two photographs were taken by Mark Stull. Mark is a local guy that designs and builds ultralight aircraft, and he took the photos from one of his aircraft.
