Start Date: 8/7/2018 -  
Dry weather, heat and wind continued to dry out the South Plains landscape where producers continued to irrigate. Some cotton was plowed up after insurance adjusters viewed it. Drought and low water supplies meant many cattle producers were shipping herds. The Bryan-College Station Eagle (Texas), Aug. 7, 2018
