As these photos show, Kanopolis Lake continues to recede at an alarming rate. The worst effects of the drought are shown here, in the northeast area of the lake. The radio reported yesterday that there is only one boat ramp in operation, and its fate is in doubt as long as this drought continues. We did have one good rain a few weeks back, and so far the wheat is not looking too bad, but as these pictures demonstrate, we need more than just the occasional storm.
