— The latest drought report says more than a third of Arkansas is in extreme drought conditions.

The U.S. Drought Monitor report, updated Thursday, says all of Arkansas is undergoing drought conditions. A handful of counties are experiencing moderate drought conditions, but most of Arkansas is either in severe or extreme drought.

Northern counties from Carroll to Clay and extending south to Jackson are in extreme drought, as is southwest Arkansas. A pocket of north central Arkansas counties from Franklin to Conway and Van Buren counties is also classified as extreme.

The National Weather Service says rain is possible this weekend and early next week, but it will likely have little impact on the drought conditions.

And yet we support hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, which requires millions of gallons of our precious water? Where's the logic? We can certainly survive without this gas, but not without water.
