How much rain?

It looks like last night’s storm dumped about 2 inches of rain on the area.

Frank Lumm in Wheatland said his rain gauge showed 2 3/8th of rain last night.

Kenosha Airport showed 1.89 inches overnight.

Anybody else have a reading out there?

From what I have been reading, it sounds like this may have been enough to save your lawn for a while.

However, it seems less likely that it will help area agriculture. I talked to a Salem farmer just this morning that said the rain is about three weeks late to do much for their crops in the  field.

UPDATE 12:56 p.m. — Mike Calvalenes reports 2.7 inches in Paris overnight. Paul Brown Jr. of Twin Lakes reports his gauge showed  a total of 3.80 overnight —  2.40 as of midnight and another 1.40 over night.

UPDATE 1:16 p.m. — Sam reports 4.02 in Salem.



  1. Northwestern Mike says:

    An overnight total of 2.7″ in Paris.

  2. Sam says:

    We had 4.2″ in our rain gauge this morning in Salem.

  3. Ab says:

    I think Sam’s rain gauge is too close to his neighbor’s sprinkler ; )

  4. Terry Burns, Village of Paddock Lake Trustee says:

    3.48″ offically @ the Paddock Lake Waste Water Treatment Plant.
    The plant got struck by lightening as well.
