Carla, Welcome to the list, lots of nice folks here. We are located in East 
Texas and are having the same trouble. Very dry and our water source is 
about gone. It is a farm pond that holds 14 acre feet of water. Any way pray 
for rain. Now about the drip tape. I have done two things that work (1) 
After the lines are put out when we plow we cover the lines, this helps a 
lot. (2) We have taken 5 gallon buckets and cut them off to about 3" high, 
set these around the fields and keep them full of water. (Just to water the 
critters) It works. Bill
