After a big increase in voting numbers towards the end of another dry week, we wanted to give everyone another go – and let our poll run for another week!
The wait was worth it too, with many people either changing or adding their vote to the poll – and the results proved surprising.
There was just over 40% support for both “too dry” and “no problems” as answers, while the remaining 18% aren’t bothered one way or another – maybe those who don’t have large properties to worry them.
It’s concerning that such a large percentage of our voters are worried, because many of our readers are spread out around the country, showing the prevalence of the effects of a dry spring.
