Dry ponds are taking over due to the drought conditions

The dry ponds at the Quail Valley Golf Course in Missouri City are a quick reminder of the exceedingly dry conditions this area has experienced.  Deborah Jackson’s backyard view of what was once a scenic body of water with natural wildlife is very different this summer. The water craft on the right is parked on solid ground. Authorities on the warming climate conditions in Texas are pretty much saying get used to it, because they report that the climate in Texas is changing.  As golf courses reportedly thrive in the drought, some of the property values of those with residences abutting them such as Jackson’s, may be adversely impacted.

    What a difference this year has made on the value of the houses that used to have water. This house was touted as having one of the best views in QV. It is certainly not the case now.
