HERMLEIGH, TX - JULY 27: A drought-stricken wheat field bakes in the sun July 27, 2011 near Hermleigh, Texas. A severe drought has caused the majority of dry-land (non-irrigated fields) crops to fail in the region. The past nine months have been the driest in Texas since record keeping began in 1895, with 75% of the state classified as "exceptional drought", the highest classification.
