We took care of what Mom needed to do, then wow! What do you know? We ended up driving by the Kansas Ocean! Isn't that a coincidence
We walked right down to the shoreline - and I just couldn't believe it.
The sea level should be up to the top of the rocks I'm standing on in the photo above; that's a pretty good illustration of how bad our drought is.
Some of the tributaries to the Kansas Ocean are frozen:
The main body of water isn't frozen, though. We're not sure why not, given what our temps have been like lately. Must be because it's an ocean! You can see it out there in this next picture:
Oh, I know. You might wonder if I had stuck my snooter into all those dried

I love helping to run errands! Especially when I get to navigate!
