A ranch is running out of water in the West's historic drought. 'In 85 years, it's not been this bad.'
(CNN) — T.J. Atkin's family has been in the cattle ranching business for nearly a century. In that time, he says, a drought has never hit their operations this hard. "Everyone else I've talked to says in 85 years, it has not been this bad," Atkin told CNN. "We have 85 years' worth of our own drought data that says we've never done this ... not to this extent."
