So sorry to hear about the drought in eastern Montana. It took me by surprise, being that it is still June, and it has been nice and moist here in western Montana.

Does anyone know if anyone has set up a Gofundme website for the victims of this drought?

I only donate to gofundme accounts after I've verified they didn't vote for trump.

It just keeps getting drier and drier. Today the sky was full of gray clouds but no moisture. Rivers are high and a foot away from the bank, the ground is dust.

Here is a link to the official drought monitoring page. If you click on a State you can get to county data. I believe map is updated every Thursday. The southwest should go red tomorrow 29-Jun-2017. This is what FSA uses to make disaster decisions and payments.

Yup. We moved up a notch. Contact your local FSA about CRP grazing.

Sadly, North Dakota is also experiencing a drought emergency.

Some places have had less than 3" of rain this year.
