The mini deluge at the end of May ended the droughts that were being experienced by Antigua, most of which started back in October , after hurricanes Irma and Maria. May was the second wettest since and the 15 th wettest on record dating back to , with an island-average rainfall of Following a wetter than normal May, June was drier than normal, yielding a meagre Meanwhile, July thus far is running below average, which is not a good sign. However, things are looking less challenging for rainfall, as ENSO has returned to neutral state from the rainfall suppressing effects of El Nino. Recent projection is for a 50 percent chance of being drier than normal. This has happily dropped from 65 percent in May, likely, at least in part, due to the dissipation of El Nino. Further, around mm

Japan’s Mating Culture Extends Baby Drought. David Turner. Tuesday, December 9, When governments start running dating programmes, you know that.
Drought’s expanse over the Lower 48 states of the U. As of April 9, only 4. You almost have to squint to see areas that are in drought, including a few patchy areas of the South from South Carolina to Alabama to Texas, a swath of New Mexico, and the north Cascades of Washington state. In fact, this is the record least drought coverage in the Lower 48 states in the over year history of the drought monitor analysis dating to January The previous record low area was on May 23, , when only 4.
It’s particularly stunning when contrasting with the most expansive Lower 48 drought this century, on September 25, , when it covered virtually the entire Plains, Rockies and Mississippi Valley. Exceptional drought, the most dire category in the drought monitor analysis, was locked into the Plains, Deep South Texas, and Georgia in early fall The last six months of was the wettest July – December period on record for the U. Texas crushed its previous record wet July – December from , joining seven other states setting a record wet second half of any year.
The first three months of were among the top 10 wettest January – March periods in a number of states from Nevada to Ohio. By late March, California was entirely drought-free for the first time since December , with a healthy snowpack to replenish reservoirs into the summer. Obviously, this is great news. We’re heading toward summer in relatively good shape from a drought perspective. With the exception of parts of the Missouri Valley ravaged by major flooding from rapid snowmelt, then heavy rain during the March bomb cyclone , most spring flooding in the Mississippi Valley and northern Plains has been more typical, than record-setting.
Help protect the places we love, the values we share. California is suffering through a major drought, and last year was the driest in state history. As a result, we all need to conserve water today, and advocate to protect our water in the future. California is in the grips of one of the worst droughts in our history, and everyone from farmers, to businesses, and ordinary Californians, are feeling its impact. Outdoors : Most water is used outside of the home—mainly to irrigate landscaping.

A shortage of single and willing Rotorua men is threatening to blunt Cupid’s arrow at a Valentine’s Day speed dating event. The Rotorua Public L.
Of course I know how to date. Side note: almost every single one comes with a hilarious story. In Houston, I could go out to one of my frequented spots, and be approached by at least one man any time I was there. Here in California, in all of the times I have been out, I have been hit on once. I was out with my girls at a bar, and a guy came over and asked me to dance.
Much to my surprise, I agreed. I think I was in shock that I was actually being talked to. We danced for a few songs. We had some conversation during our dancing, but nothing that stuck out to me as a potential match. Before we parted ways so that I could dance with my friends again, he asked me for my number. I declined. That was my one experience getting hit on while out.
What I noticed about men in the South is that they are much more likely to approach a woman. Out here I have been stared at for a long time without any form of communication attempted.
The solution to NYC’s man drought? Date down
By Sean O’grady For Mailonline. Ulrika Jonsson has revealed she is still dating the man who ended her five-year sex draught following the end of her sexless marriage to Brian Monet. The TV presenter, 52, also admitted all her friends told her she needed to ‘get laid’ during her period of only having sex once in eight years.

By Anna Davies. My husband is successful, driven and a devoted dad. What more could I want? Such was the case for Andrea, who met year-old Jason during her second year of law school while hanging out at a watering hole on Long Island. She was still reeling from her previous relationship with a guy who ticked off all the right boxes. Despite not always fitting in with the cocktail crowd, women in these partnerships say there are advantages that come from marrying someone without a university education.
Australia’s ‘man drought’ is real — especially if you’re a Christian woman looking for love
As the summer comes to an end, and we push our summer flings into the closet and close the door tightly behind us we begin to question what it really means to be in a serious relationship. When September does roll around we find ourselves back in our busy life style, going to work or school, and not really too concerned about being in a relationship because we had just spent the last three months sneaking around in an unofficial relationship.
As the leaves begin to fall we reach the dreaded season of the dating drought which occurs between Halloween and Thanksgiving. Couples costumes and family gatherings put us all in a dating panic, and we realize summer flings are a waste and we need to get in a serious relationship ASAP. We go from being so okay with just a fling to hitting that point where we are all desperate to find love right before the holidays.
As the leaves begin to fall we reach the dreaded season of the dating drought which occurs between Halloween and Thanksgiving. Couples.
The Plains have experienced prolonged, and in some places severe, drought during the last several years. Yes—and it has, several times before. The Sandhills are a lush and complex grassland ecosystem sitting atop the massive Oglalla aquifer, supporting many cattle ranches and species of wildlife. Several test plots hold only patchy vegetation and lots of bare sand. That drought, possibly exacerbated by strong winds, wiped out vegetation across the Sandhills. UNL scientists have spent the last 15 years dating the Sandhills through a process called optically stimulated luminescence, which measures the electrical charge of sand grains.
Hanson said to think of each sand grain as an individual rechargeable battery. Hanson and his colleagues drill down 60 to 80 feet to take core samples of the dunes, then return to their lab to study them. On the UNL campus, Hanson leads the way through a rotating door of darkness to enter the lab lit by red and amber lights.
4 Ways To Handle A Dating Drought
Great Drought , climatic interval of the Holocene Epoch that affected much of what is now the western United States and had a profound influence upon the plants, animals, and prehistoric Native American cultures of the region. The Holocene began about 11, years ago and continues to the present. The region affected by the Great Drought encompassed the area that extended from what is now Oregon to southern California and east to what is now eastern Texas; dendrochronology , or tree-ring studies, indicate that it began in ad and continued through Ancestral Pueblo Anasazi and Hohokam peoples were particularly affected by the Great Drought; their agricultural economies had by this time enabled them to form densely occupied communities.
After repeated years of crop failure, they were compelled to abandon their towns and disperse across the land. Parallel reductions in wild food sources affected nomadic peoples, and social disruptions are thought to have occurred as nomads and former farmers were placed in competition for the few resources that survived under very dry conditions.
Water shortage and drought. If groundwater levels are low, a municipality may issue an outdoor water-use restriction and encourage.
In palaeoclimate reconstructions, the combination of proxy records measured in different climate archives is challenging because of the uncertainties associated with each proxy, but it can also help reduce some of these uncertainties. The reconstructed long-term trends in relative humidity differ from a previously published reconstruction of moisture variability based on the tree ring record alone.
Further measurements will be necessary to support either reconstruction. Nevertheless, this investigation demonstrates the great potential for combining isotope proxies from speleothems and tree rings to reconstruct both the low- and high-frequency variability of drought. The authors thank the Versaveau family, owners of Villars Cave, Thierry Baritaud for his help in sampling the stalagmite, and two reviewers for their suggestions and comments.
However, it remains challenging to compare and combine proxies from different climate archives, as all are afflicted with their own uncertainties related to dating, climate sensitivity, and linearity, and they are limited to certain aspects of variations in climate. A multi-proxy approach can give a broader perspective on past climate change, and may help constrain the causes of variability Mann, ; Guiot et al.
Their advantage lies in the annual resolution and the precise dating. Tree ring proxies can be well replicated and quantified by comparing them directly to meteorological variables from the year of ring formation. Their calibration is based on the statistical relationships with climate e. Models for climate reconstruction based on these relationships can be verified using independent meteorological data, i.
