FINALLY, Washington County announces burn ban, just as storm clouds continue to pass without wetting the ground in south Fayetteville

The question is why two months of drought had to occur before the announcement was made?

Washington County has for a long time been mysteriously reluctant to have a burn ban even in windy droughts. Is there a reason? We've got a new fire marshal and so I thought things would improve. I heard (from TV) just a few days ago there was a burn ban. This was after weeks of scarily dry weather with no burn ban. Although there was (maybe) a 1 or 2 day ban (again, TV) at the beginning of this drought, it seems to have been lifted and then reinstated just before the rain. Or is this only a communication problem?
