The article reports on the impact of severe drought on the daily activities, businesses and environment in the Western states in the U.S. It was stated that the expected winter in the late November of 2007 had not arrived, which affected the business of ski and mountain resorts, ranchers and water managers in the West. According to the author, instead of skiing and snowboarding, people played golf at the mountain resorts over the Thanksgiving day. New Mexico and California have experienced wildfires during the summer which destroyed homes and vast areas of lands. In addition, the drought and late winter season have also affected animals, such as bears.
