The rain came down Saturday fast and furious leaving over an inch of rain in places around the Bend. Just seven tenths of rain fell at William Clark’s place.
Rain has been hopscotching around and at different times the down pour is heavy and other places it will just be a small amount.
What is needed now is a big general rain over the whole county. It is a shame some of the rain that flooded Florida could have been sent our way, giving those people and us some relief.
