The Wichita area gets about 29 inches of rain annually. For the last couple of years, heat and drought has not been kind to the area. Wichita had a couple days of rain, but the Arkansas River is still dry. With current total we are not bone dry, but only at 24 inches for the year. Even kneeling down in the sand for a picture, I noticed it was dry.
