Ask and You Shall Receive

It was a soaker this weekend, but the steady, persistent rain showers was exactly what we needed.

Anytime you are in a drought (like we are now), a slow and steady rain is the best kind to receive as it allows the moisture to soak into the parched ground soils.

Rainfall totals were rather impressive, as many areas picked up well over 2". Some even received 3" and some change. Considering the rain accumulated over a 36 hour period, it allowed the drains to absorb the water with relative ease.

Here are rainfall totals as reported from our always observant and dedicated weather watchers. Take a look at the images below to see how much rain fell where you live.

We will see a break in the rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, before a strong cold front provides us with more showers by Thursday.
