This is the season of torrential rain in KC. Amazing amounts of water falling from the sky. Part of why this area is so green. Extraordinary green. Green like a dragon pouncing, claws growing and swiping at any available space. Grass is tide rising and shrubs a crashing wave. I have little doubt that a season or two with out people here to beat back the brush, this great metropolis would vanish under a tangled mass of branch and leaf. I wonder if, like the virus’s that grow resistant to ever stronger antibiotics, this greenery, so long subject to the mower blade and week whacker, has not become a super strain of bio aggression.

Hi Randy:

I've only passed thru KC, but I did spend a week in Columbia in the summer 20 years ago (almost excatly) & I remember it was really lush & green.
