Update on Triple digit total and rainfall


Here is the number of 100 degree days for 2013 versus "this time last year". All 5 cities listed here are well below last year's pace, which I'm sure angers just about, um, nobody.

The Summer months can be a frustrating time of year for ranchers, farmers and gardeners, especially when you hear that your neighbors down the road got more rain than you did!  Case in point, check out this comparison of this month's rainfall totals here in Wichita:

My house (east Wichita): 3.15"
Mid-Continent Airport: 2.61"
Jabara Airport: 2.05"

Here's some additional totals.  Your mileage may vary.

Winfield: 5.20" (not an error!)
Coffeyville: 2.29"
Salina: 2.29"
Medicine Lodge: 1.72"
Dodge City: 1.33"
Chanute: 0.91"
Hutchinson Airport: 0.69"
Russell: 0.68"
Garden City: 0.42"
Hill City: 0.23"
Goodland: 0.16"

I could spend all afternoon calculating rainfall totals but I have some other projects to tackle!
