While most of the state has been able to at least ease the effects of a drought turning one year old this month, there are still a handful of counties in Northcentral Oklahoma that are neck-deep in the dust.
While most of Oklahoma is at least a little dry, that little portion of Northern OK just can't seem to get any meaningful rainfall so far this year. Granted, this July looks so much better than it did last September.
In a bit of good news, Oklahoma Mesonet is predicting a good long soaking rain in the amounts of inches over the next week for the driest areas of the Sooner State.
With high hopes this coming wet week will fill up the lakes and reservoirs, it's making the rounds on social media at the speed of light. Anglers and lake-goers alike are hoping this will finally fill up places like Lake Ponca, Kaw Lake, Fairfax, Pawhuska, Birch, etc... All the good fishing and party lake.
Whether or not this will save lake season across the Cherokee Strip, we won't know for at least a week. After the last year of drought, any rain is good rain.
This Grand Lake Home is Straight Out of Yellowstone
If you were looking to get pretty far from the hustle and bustle and had $3.5million burning a hole in your pocket, this Yellowstone-looking massive cabin home might be just the place for you.
Unlike most lake homes, this one looks very lived in full-time. The stocked pantry and full workshop really scream "Retirement Home" in my mind.
With just over 5300 square feet of living space, five well-appointed bedrooms, five bathrooms, two stories, a detached shop, plenty of lakefront, and your own personal dock... this looks like a dream out in the middle of nowhere. Unlike a lot of Oklahoma's most expensive homes, this one actually looks really well put together. Everything matches, one theme, etc... It's a rare case of the wealthy having good taste.
