Texas Drought Will Affect Food Prices

The Houston Chronicle has an interesting article online this morning, “Drought Sears Farmers’ Hopes,” written by William Pack of the San Antonio News Express. It expressed the fears and frustrations of our area farmers and cattle ranchers as they cope with the effects of the drought and wildfires, just when commodity prices are high, and they would have had a banner year if the weather would have only cooperated.

Toward the end of the article, Pack notes that the La Nina in the Pacific seems to be weakening, and that could spell the end of the drought — something we are all sincerely hoping and praying for at the moment. The rains can’t return soon enough.
