Insects and Winter

First an update on the drought monitor is in order. Even with recent moisture, all but Northeast and part of North Central Kansas are in some stage of moisture deficit. Barton County is on the eastern edge of abnormally dry as is most of Rice County. Just to our northeast the deficit disappears. Moderate drought is as close as western Pawnee County and severe drought has settled over much of Southwest Kansas. This is hardly unusual for the western half of the state, however, damage to winter wheat due to cold is often tied to soil moisture deficits.

Christmas tree removal

Did you enjoy a fresh cut tree for Christmas this year? There are many benefits to having one in your house for the season, but soon, they need to be taken down and removed from your house.

If you live in Great Bend or Ellinwood, you can take your tree (with lights, ornaments and tinsel removed) to the city composts sites.

As a youngster, I have fond memories of Mom inside fixing turkey and dressing while my siblings and I would be playing outside throwing snowballs, playing "fox and geese" and just being kids.
