More Images of Drought

A few more images of the impact the drought has had here Somewhere-in-the-Middle-of-the-USA from a recent walk through Shawnee Mission Park.

Drought Photo #1.  Crispy leaves hang from a tree overlooking what’s left of a stream.

Drought Photo #2.  The water levels are down significantly in every body of water.  Smaller streams and creeks are completely dry.  It’s very depressing.

Drought Photo #3.  Usually it’s easy to take a walk in one of the county parks and find plenty of wildlife, especially birds.  This summer it’s been very hard to find much of anything due to the extreme heat and lack of rain.  This lone feather floating on top of a quickly receding water line was a sad reminder of what we’re missing this summer.
