Weekend yields more rain

After too long a dry spell, Potter County has had some beautiful rainy weather during the past week.
About four inches fell over the weekend of May 18, which did result in some basement damage around town. Most of it was sucked into the soil, and some sunshine later in the week brought a burst of color to the county.
Storms over the past weekend collected about another inch and a half of precip, to give a good soaking to the area. More rain is predicted throughout the week.
So far there has even been enough moisture to hear a few complaints from farmers that they haven’t been able to finish up planting the row crops. Happily, the complaining is done mostly in jest, and overall folks are pleased to see the rain and the fields and pastures turning green.
