The Race to 12 inches

Posted: 28 Jun 2010 05:12 AM

Once upon a time, three cities unwillingly entered a race to see which could exceed 12 inches of rainfall for the month of June. Lamoni got off to a quick start and easily reached 12 inches with a half of the month left to go. Des Moines plodded along, slowly but surely reaching the goal. Ames followed along with Des Moines, but took a nap for a week before quickly making up the difference this past last weekend. The moral of the story is that nobody is happy to have finished this race as we are left with considerable flooding impacts. The good news is that dry weather is in the forecast for this week!

Good = 45
Bad = 3
