OMAHA (DTN) -- As I write this at zero-dark-thirty Thursday, rain is again, not so much falling on as assaulting, the Omaha area.

Omaha had the dubious honor of posting the most rainfall nationwide in a 24-hour period ending at 6 p.m. Wednesday -- 1.78 inches -- according to DTN Ag Weather. On Tuesday, Omaha also earned the top spot with 1.71 inches.

It's not just eastern Nebraska, though, racking up the inches. On Sunday, Milwaukee, Wis., was #1 in the nation with 1.62 inches; Saturday it was Rockford, Ill., with 2.24; Friday saw 2.15 in Springfield, Ill., rain gauges.
