It's the first anniversary of the drought that's crippling Texas: Less than 12inches of rain in a year

In 2011, Houston has seen less than one foot of rainfall (11.94 inches as of last Thursday, to be exact), compared to the average January through September total of approximately 40 inches. That accounts for a rainfall deficit of more than 28 inches since January 2011.
