Attention Superintendents.

This USGA Green Section webcast needs to be on your schedule!

Date: Friday, August 12, 2011
Time: 10:00 AM Central


It's official...Texas is now suffering through the most severe drought on record, according to John Nielsen-Gammon, the Texas State Climatologist and professor of atmospheric sciences at Texas A&M University.  In fact, the lower Mid-Continent Region is setting records in extreme temperature highs and drought.  The hottest day on record was hit in the Texas Panhandle in Borger, Texas at 113°, and Pecos, Texas, has had no rain since September 23, 2010, which is one of the longest rain-free periods for a U.S. city in recorded history, outside the desert regions of California and Arizona.  Not only is Texas affected, but Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico, and portions of Kansas are being blasted with these same conditions as well.
