You may be getting tired of these long rain lists. If so, let me know. However, during these years of deficient rain I feel that there is a heightened interest in knowing how much occurred in your community. These reports are for the 24 hours ending at 7:00 this morning. Of course, almost all of it came down during yesterday’s big storms.
