The Southeast is experiencing a drought of historic proportions. Some southern cities say they may run out of water in 3-4 months. I'll be curious to see if this story comes and goes like many other weather stories, or if it stays and becomes a major event of the year.
An exposed lake bed is shown at Lake Lanier in Buford, Ga., Friday, Oct. 12, 2007. Rivers throughout the Southeast are turning to dust, towns are threatening to ration dwindling water supplies and lawmakers are pointing fingers as the region struggles with an epic drought that seems to be getting worse.
