Drought continues to strengthen its hold on Arkansas, with a third of the state’s area in what the U.S. Drought Monitor calls “exceptional drought,” the most intense category of dryness. That area includes the Suburban Ferndale rural-plex. And it’s hot, with 100-plus degree temps (37 C and up).  Call it desert-like. Call it drought-blasted, but the most vivid indicator of our drought was this: the fence lizard turning this bucket into his own private swimming pool.

COOL POOL — This lizard wiled away at least an hour in this catch bucket set up under the spigot.

  1. I can relate to the lizard. We are finally get a little rain right now but from the radar it doesn’t look like it will give much or last long. I’m not going to complain though. Hopefully you’ll get a drop or two as well.
