      Oh my! When they say 'exceptional drought' on The Weather Channel, it's hard to imagine what that really means. This image shows the devastation. Incredible and sad. Hope ya'll get rained upon and soon!

      Uhhhhh.... that's how you harvest Sunflower seeds. Nothing in this photo is damaged by drought. In fact this particular farmer planted sunflowers because they wouldn't be affected as much by the drought.

      Sorry, I talked to the farmer and these plants all died from the Texas drought of last year.
