How Dry Is It?

This is a copy of an e.mail I received today from a fellow Oklahoma drought victim.  The weather service reports we are at the same drought severity as during the Dust Bowl years.  The only thing that prevents a repeat of those times is the changes that have occurred in agricultural practices.  The eastern part of the state continues to receive precipitation, but we remain in extreme drought. 
How DRY Is It in Oklahoma???
A buddy out of McAlester said he'd killed a mosquito that was carrying a canteen.
A man in Lawton said the chicken farmers were giving the chickens
crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.
In Ada, they caught a 20 lb catfish that had ticks on it!
But just this week, in Okmulgee, a fire hydrant was seen bribing a dog.
It's so dry in Oklahoma that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling,
the Methodists are using wet-wipes,
the Presbyterians are giving out rain-checks,
and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water.

Now THAT's Dry!!!
