The Drought of 2012

A dry lake bed on a farm in Nebraska. 2012 saw the highest recorded temperatures in American history. Over the summer most of the mid-west experienced a tremendous drought, where hot weather and the lack of rain destroyed crops and grazing land. In the high plains of Western Nebraska's cattle lands, this created ideal conditions for wild fires, which spread across the land sparked by single bolts of lightning.
