Problems from drought?

Is anyone else unlucky enough to be in an area that is not getting the usual amount of rain? The area I'm in has only had a couple significant rains, just enough to get us out of burn bans for the time being.

I've barely seen any wild turtles, and no box turtles this year at all.

Mine came up nearly two weeks late from hibernation - only after our pitiful rains. Two never came up at all. Has anyone ever lost any because of this? They are ornate juvies from 2006. All were good weights when they went down and those that came up show some winter growth. But we had literally no precipitation for months.

The last one came up May 20th, so part of me still holds out a small amount of hope though I know they won't be up. It was one of my middle sized ones and my largest juvie (the big girl being my favorite ).
