“You’re never more than two weeks away from a drought”

"You’re never more than two weeks away from a drought” is an adage used in many parts of the United States. “We are never more than two weeks away from a drought in this area (South Dakota—ed.)” was cited in print in 1986. “Remember, we (Texas—ed.) are always two weeks away from a drought” was cited in 1987.

“In New Jersey you’re always 10 days to two weeks away from a drought” was cited in 2014.


28 March 1986, Aberdeen (SD) American News, “Sully County hopes rise when interest rates fall,” pg. 38, col. 3:
Likness thins the moisture situation looks good now, but “we are never more than two weeks away from a drought in this area.”

12 March 1987, Malakoff (TX) News, “The Bottom Line,” pg. 13A, col. 2:
Remember, we are always two weeks away from a drought.

24 May 1989, Hutchinson (KS) News, “Rains break drought in SW Kansas “ by Ray Hemman, pg. 35, col. 2:
For the first time since April 1, an area of Kansas needs no rain.

And it’s not southeast Kansas, an area commonly considered to be “two weeks away from a drought and 24 hours away from a flood.”
