State drought offically called 'over'
It's finally over. The Drought-of-2012 officially ended in Wisconsin this morning, when the U.S. Drought Monitor said no place in the state is abnormally dry any longer.
After the extended winter and the recent heavy rains, you may have assumed that Wisconsin is so water-logged, it's hard to believe that any place could still have drought conditions. The Minocqua area was the final holdout, losing its drought status just this past week.
