Drought worries continue
On Tuesday, the Rivanna Water & Sewer Authority warned us that 2006 could be another drought year. Now state officials are sounding the same warning.
"We have just experienced the driest March in the entire statewide record of 112 years," said Patrick J. Michaels, a state climatologist in Charlottesville, according to a Richmond Times-Dispatch report. Michaels said we could see some improvement in the dry conditions by mid-April, but underscored that with a big "if."
