It's official, half of West Virginia is now in a moderate drought.
If we don't get any considerable rain, it could mean more than just dry grass.
More than half of West Virginia is now in a moderate drought, which means that not only plants could suffer. With a drought, we start to loose valuable water naturally stored underground and that water is what we use everyday.
When a drought is declared, depending on the severity, different restrictions are imposed.
For now you can give your thirsty shrubs a drink, but if the underground water levels get low, the shrubs will have to suffer so that there is enough water to go around.
Also, during a drought, you should try to keep your grass at least 3 and a half inches long.
