   It hasn't rained a drop for months.


Hear the storyline. A drought has just set in and the two people in the dialogue below are very concerned...





Sally: I think a drought has set in.  It hasn't rained a drop for months.

Ethan: I think so, too, but didn't it rain last month?

Sally: It did rain last month, but the rainfall was only half the monthly average.

Ethan: Oh.  That bad?! 

Sally: That's right.  It's really bad.  I'm really concerned though not panicked yet. 

Ethan: I don't blame you.  The pastures have browned out even before the summer hasn't arrived.

Sally: Yeah, and the soil has been baked so hard that the plow can't even break the soil. 

Ethan: Looks like it's going to be an ongoing thing that would get worse each day.

Sally: Yeah.  If it doesn't rain, it's going to get critical.
