How do we know if we are going through a drought?

    Whether or not a drought is occurring completely depends on your areas normal climate and weather.  Look up your local areas drought indicators.  For example, in Colorado, you can visit the state’s Department of Natural Resources online and visit the page on “Water Availability and Drought Outlook.”  Here, they track drought indicators such as monthly water supply reports, historical norms, resevoir levels, and rain gauge sites to name a few.    If you are living within the USA, you can also check out the US Drought Monitor online to see where droughts are occurring throughout the US and to what degree.
