As The Shark's Official Drought Monitor, I have been lulled into a false sense of moistness. The Drought Map is back and TWO local counties are DRY yet again!

BOTH Shark terrestrial hot beds Rockingham AND Strafford Counties are ABNORMALLY DRY!

Over the past two weeks, the dryness began in a small section of Rochester and spread rapidly throughout the entire Seacoast region and beyond!

Hopefully this is just a fluke and things will return to normal soon as the harvesting period for local farmers has just begun. We cannot afford another 2016 mega-drought!

I promise to keep a close eye on this over the next few weeks.
