I was told today that the KS water office is not going to allow them to pump anything locally due to low river flows. Damn we need some rain.

We definitely need the rain. Is it statewide that they are not allowed to pump or just certain areas?

New drought map

Don't know about anybody else, but I am starting to see cracks in my sheetrock in the house and some doors aren't shutting right. Old timer told me today I should've been watering my foundation all summer. I'd have appreciated a heads up.

DROUGHT PROMPTING CONCERNS AT WOLF CREEK
By The Associated Press
Posted Oct. 19, 2011

TOPEKA -- Prolonged drought conditions are taking a toll on Kansas reservoirs as water levels decline and abundant rains remain elusive.

Earl Lewis, assistant director of the Kansas Water Office, told the Joint Committee on Energy and Environment on Tuesday there is reason to be concerned about the water levels and the impact on communities and recreational use into 2012.

Lewis said one lake of particular concern is John Redmond Reservoir, which is used as a source of water for the Wolf Creek nuclear plant in eastern Kansas. The reservoir is about 54 percent of its conservation pool level, and that could decline to 34 percent by mid-November.

The lake usually recharges each spring, but Lewis says continued drought through early 2012 could raise concerns about use next summer and fall.

Went out today for the first time to check on my spots around Lawrence. Nothing!! Dry to the bone. Felt like I was walking through a desert. I didn't even think it was bad this far north but apparently it is. Depressing with the season only a week away.
2012-2013 Season

Looking forward to it

Neighbor has lived here for 72 years and duck hunted 50 plus. He said the only time he has seen it this dry was iin the early 80s and it didn't last this long.
