NOAA is reporting 1.52" at the airport in Miles City for the last 72 hours. Most of that fell this afternoon.

I live out a Bergersons and Sat. morning we had 6/10" and in the evenings we had a down pour of 1 9/10" for a total of 2 1/2".

We didn't get any hail with the rain.

Underpass was closed and several intersections were flooded. The usual BHS weather.

We have had about 1.5 inches here in the Big Horn Valley. Not a drought buster but it was much needed.

I had several Clearfield wheat farmers in the area that decided last week to abandon the Beyond application and use 2,4D + dicamba instead with no grass control. They are probably regretting that decision. This rain will go along way to making a crop.

It will be interesting to see if the cool-season grasses respond to the moisture or if the rain was too late.

This past Thursday I drove from Hardin to Albuquerque. It was green most of the way down I-25 until Raton Pass. From there on south, it is extremely dry. Even the cactus was stressed and looking for the nearest cantina.

Here is an image of rainfall totals in the area:

We've had 4.38" in the last 24hrs and 2" the day prior. It's easier just to say we've had 3 dry days so far since 30 Apr instead of how much it's rained.
