Winter leaves the Kansas City area high and dry

For more than a week earlier this month, area residents trudged through 10 inches of snow. But when it melted, there were no puddles on the ground. It was dry everywhere. That 10-inch snowfall delivered just a half inch of liquid moisture. The snow was dry because conditions were bitterly cold when it fell. It’s been that way all winter, bringing no relief to a metro area on the border of drought.
