Yeah, scarface_usmc-
It's also dry as a bone here in the central part of the state. We've had several good years, but looks like we might be heading back into a drought cycle.
Maybe since the Pacific is in a La Nina state, that might have something to do with it.

Here's a great link for the Oklahoma Mesonet which shows soil temps, moisture at several depths, etc. It's THE world class enviro/weather system that all the rest want to emulate.
http://www.mesonet.org/

Of course, we have the National Weather Center, Nat'l Severe Storms Lab and Nat'l Severe Storm Prediction Center here as well as the nation's latest and greatest radars.
When there's a chance that more F5s might fire up and go rippin' across the state, it's good to know that somebody's payin' attention.

Talk about timing! Drudge Report just linked to an article saying that Oklahoma just experienced the driest 4 months since the Dust Bowl. There's no rain in the next week's forecast, either.

Wednesday morning I got home at 1:30 AM. Opened up the forum to check the new post before going to bed. Turned around to a orange glow. The 360 acres SE of me was on fire. Its a good thing the winds had calmed downfrom the 45 MPH during the day to only around 20 mph.
 
 
 
 
It was after 4 AM before getting back in to shower and go to bed.

Mostly sage grass with a few clumps of 6-8' small trees. With the wind it was dropping embers out to 1/2 mile. I spent my time at my property line. There were 8 trucks. 2 pumpers 1 water truck and 5 of the wildfire trucks.

Send it this way man. My yard has a bunch of cracks in it and I'm thinking about filling them with sand so when it does rain I gain some land.Wink
