|Title: Weather Diary 23 July 1886|
Concept: The meanace of drought.
Detail: In two more days it would rain, but since the 26th of
June, Lawrence, Kansas had seen nothing but drought. In these years before widespread irrigation, farmers were close to nature, often in the way that a prisoner is close to the hanging noose. Even today, wide
spread drought conditions in the plains can result in billions of
dollars of economic loss. As western water supplies become even more
precious, water conservation is a national problem which continues to receive inadequate attention.
Just witness the devastating droughts and wildfires in Texas in summer 2011.
