Just When We Were Beginning To Green, Back to 100 Degrees

Kansas Viewpoint

After a couple of rains and a brief respite into high 80s and low 90s, Kansas is back in the oven

The rain came with the price -- high winds and hail and power outages. But it was so worth it to see temperatures drop out of the persistent triple-digit range that marked most of July and early August.

Now the party is over.

Just as a little tinge of green here and there began to appear, we are back to the triple-digit forecasts, with highs flirting with the low 100s for the next several days.

One thing I know for sure.  Most of Kansas will be happy to say goodbye to the summer of 2011.
