While many residents in the Missouri Valley are dealing with this...
Doesn't it just about make you sick that so many counties in Kansas are dealing with this?

I guess I hope this post makes you stop and think of everyone who is affected by the extreme weather this summer and will be dealing with it on a day to day basis. Many farmers and ranchers are in danger of losing precious ground that has been in production for generations whether it be to a flood or extreme drought. It's going to be a rough summer for many, but agriculturists are pulling their boots on every day and digging their heels in to the ground to hang on for the ride.
I thought these maps were neat, well neat might not be the word to use...
Counties in Kansas affected by severe drought.
Areas in the Missouri River Valley affected by the severe flooding.
Praying for those involved,
