Episode Narrative Severe drought, or D2, either continued or developed over much of Oklahoma by late in the month. Much of Oklahoma continued with another month of below normal precipitation. In some cases, only a few hundredths were recorded for the entire 31 days. Since Thanksgiving, much of central and western Oklahoma has seen its driest precipitation totals since the 1920s and 30s. Much of the wheat crop planted in the fall had all but been declared a total loss. In fact, the conditions have gotten worse with the emergence of the wheat crop. The lack of precipitation has made for low water levels on stock ponds for livestock, and the water level in irrigation reservoirs used for crops is falling. The exact monetary number for the crop loss can not be determined, although it would probably be in the millions.
