The drought started in late July of 2011 for us. We are located in extreme north east Nebraska. If You follow the drought of 1955- 1956 it didn't break until the late spring of 1957.

I'm with Dan....in s mn we have had drought conditions since 8/11. Does it matter that from mid April12 to mid June/12 the precip was near normal even tho the subsoil didn't fully recharge? Does that mean last year was technically a different drought?
