Drought-stricken Texas


In this Sunday Aug. 7, 2011 photo, the skeletal remains of a fresh water crab is seen on the cracked, dry bed of Lake E.V. Spence in Robert Lee, Texas. The drought that has turned Texas and parts of the Plains into a parched moonscape of cracked earth could persist into next year, prolonging the misery of farmers and ranchers who have endured a dry spell that is now expected to be the state's worst since the 1950s.
