Farmers brace for another drought in 2013

Farmers across the Midwest and across the country, couldn't wait to close the books on the year 2012 and the drought, but they may feel the same way about 2013.

Weekly updates from the U.S. Drought Monitor show few signs the drought is letting up. More than half of the country is still in some form of drought. Climatologists say we would need a ridiculous amount of snow for that to change this winter, which means the hope now is for heavy spring rain.
