Coming of age in the ‘70s I wore out many an 8-track tape in my GTO. It’s hard to remember which was louder, the music coming out of the speakers or the rumble from the burned out glass-packs. Either way, that was not a good vehicle to use when trying to sneak into the drive-in movie theatre through the back gate … But I digress. These days I love living in the Texoma area, writing and voicing Radio commercials, and taking pictures with my Nikon. By the way, if you see someone jumping for joy at the vintage LP he just discovered in one of the local resale shops, that’s probably me.

The Four Stages Of Drought Management – Do You Know What They Are?

It looks like the summer of 2011 might just be one for the books. And while it's always exciting to set new records, there are downsides, too. Things like water usage restrictions due to drought management programs.

As I write this, we're still in the "Normal" status according to the City of Wichita Falls. Even so, it's time to seriously consider your water usage.

Long, hot, dry summers are no stranger to Wichita Falls, and four stages of drought management plans are in place to deal with the situation as it develops from year to year. By the time this summer is over we'll probably be well acquainted with several of them.
