There Used to be A River Here

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.

One small area of water, and a guard daring anyone to come close.

These pictures just hurt. If not for the little rain we did get the last couple of days, THAT probably would have been dry.
