NEW POLL: How dry is it at your place?

While the last couple of weeks has seen its fair share of extreme weather, we’ve had a lot of correspondence from different parts of the country about how dry it’s getting in places.

Hastings District Council, for instance, issued a number of suggestions to locals for conserving water, after an extended dry spell which is worrying landowners – while eastern and northern areas of both islands are starting to dry out.

So we wanted to know from our readers – how many of you are concerned with the current state of things? Is it drying out where you are, or are you seeing the opposite? We’re picking a fairly dry end to November for the country, so it may get worse before it gets better…

Let us know by voting in our poll, and tell us where you’re from in the comments section below!
