About two weeks ago I drove to Farmersville to see a client. The 380 route is quite pleasant once you pass through very congested McKinney and Princeton. Once in the country plenty of development can be seen but there are areas of open fields and there is Lake Lavon.
It was quite startling to see the result of the 2011 drought has taken on this reservoir. Water is normally seen over this entire area in the image above. Traffic was at a minimum on the four lane highway and I was able to pull off onto the shoulder and quickly take a picture of the drought stricken shore.
