We were very excited about the moisture we received last week. I know that some places got lots and had flooding to contend with, but our 1 1/2 inches Friday night came real nice. We just had a rain storm go through here about thirty minutes ago. Kyle reported that we had 1 1/2 inches again. Luckily, we missed the large hail that Kit Carson and Granada got. There were probably others but those were my only sources this evening. Hate the bad storms, but our country was in bad need of moisture. Maybe this will break the dry cycle.
Our communities would like to extend their condolences to Lori Healy and family on the loss of her dad recently.
