I checked the rain guage last night and we had gotten around 3" over the previous 12 hours. I emptied it last night and when I checked it a few minutes ago we had 5" more inches from overnight storms. Thats a total of 8" in about 30-36 hours. The better news is that the rains were widespread and not isolated storms like we usually get. Thats going to have a major impact on our rivers and lakes.
