Almost all of Minnesota is experiencing a drought, leading many cities to introduce water conservation measures. This week the city of Minneapolis introduced, odd even watering restrictions.

Minnesota needs at minimum another 5 inches of rain through the next few weeks for drought conditions to improve. But with the heat continuing this week and temperatures hitting the 90s, there is little relief in sight. So do what you can and please stay hydrated.
