A:I think a drought has set in. It hasn't rained a drop for two months.
B ： Did you hear the weather forecast? The temperature has today reached a record 102 degrees and may well hit 105 tomorrow.
A:Oh. That’s too bad! The drought conditions are getting severe! I’m really concerned though not panicked yet.
B:l don’t blame you. The ground is parched and the soil has been baked so hard that the plow can’t even break the soil.
A:Well，if it could rain even a drop, things would be much better! And my flowers in the garden would come back in a heartbeat.
B： I guess you might have to quit watering your garden. I heard that they are going to start rationing water. In fact，this morning I happened to hear on the radio that the reservoir had dipped below half its capacity this month and the volume of water entering the reservoir is the smallest in ten years .
B:我猜你得放弃浇花了。听说要实行配给 供水了。事实上，我今天早上碰巧从广 播中听说这个月水库的蓄水量降至其容 量的一半以下，是十年来的最低水平。
A:I heard that,but it’s not surprising actually, because we haven’t had as much rain as normal this year.
B： Looks like it’s going to be an ongoing thing that would get worse each day.
A： Yeah. If it doesn’t rain,it's going to get critical.
B ： There go my flowers!
A： I guess so. But think about Africa.
