Texas continues to suffer a serious rainfall deficit and is on track to experience the second-worst drought on record.
Most of the state is still in extreme drought and the forecast tilts toward drier-than-normal conditions through the spring.
For some parts of the state, the current drought may end up being the worst ever recorded.
And although the federal government has already tried to buffer the economic hit that farmers and ranchers endure, some say it is always too little, too late.
Texas has only received 68 percent of its normal rainfall, and reservoirs are at their lowest levels since 1990.
