Pond Pics- A Comparision of Pond Levels from the Fall of 2012 to Now

Pond Pics- A Comparision of Pond Levels from the Fall of 2012 to Now Rainfall helps. That's a simple message that can be seen in these two pictures provided by Clay Burtrum- one from last fall (the one above) and one taken at the end of month of May- this past week. One of the biggest worries we have heard from many ranchers is that not only their pasture and rangeland has been hurt by the drought of the last couple of years- ponds were dry. That was the case as spring began across almost all of the state of Oklahoma.

It is still the case in western counties- but for about the eastern two thirds of the state- ponds now have more water in them than a year ago and in the case of one rancher that we heard from in recent days (north of Tulsa)- they are in the best shape they have been in for the past four years.

Specifically- these pictures are of a pond near Glencoe (north of Stillwater). The icture above was taken in the fall of 2012- the one below was taken May 30, 2013.

The pictures tell the story.
