It's incredible to even think of getting 7"+ of rain in one night. It's been over five years since we've even had a two inch rain in one day on the SW Kansas farm I live on. It seems like the last number of years we tend to just get 1/2" rains instead of those booming thunderstorms that we used to get. Honestly I can't remember the last time we went to the storm shelter. Living in Kansas severe storm warnings are just a part of life in the spring and summer, but have eluded us out west here of late.

Gully washers are no good for sure, seems like once a guy gets lined up under these training thunderstorms, there just tons of water falling. I'm thinking the cool wet weather pattern is going to be a reality.

I remember 60 years ago one night we got seven inches of rain. This was back before their wasn't any NRD's. Water everywhere. Then my dad and uncle cutting wheat in the bottom in a big cloud of dust without a cab. Tuesday night while on my way to my storm shelter I look at my weather station and it had about .04 in rain. When I returned about 15 minutes later it had over .90 on it. It does help fill up ponds that have low for two years. Gerhart Bredemeier
