    Texas Finally Green After a Year of Brown

    The weather in Texas went from drought in the fall to flooding this spring. Last year's drought seriously impacted the state with wildfires [photos], a resurgence of dust storms [photos] and Christmas trees dying. (The drought was also linked to more snake encounters, an increase of rabies cases, and cattle deaths. Snakes, rabies and cows, oh my!)

    This spring, the rain has brought back the green on an image of Texas by NASA satellite MODIS. Texans can enjoy the green while dealing with flooding, road closures and water rescues.
