Drought is only a dry memory

A snowy winter, a deluge of rain in recent months and even that strange May flurry all played a part in washing away the drought. Kansas City’s total precipitation for May and June so far is 9.58 inches, compared with last year’s 3.46 May and June total. Lakes may be the most dramatic sign that 2013 is a much different year.
