Wow. That seemed like two inches in twenty minutes in Salisbury.

Almost 6/10 of an inch and the temp dropped 15 degrees in an hour in Snow Hill.

Cool, we needed it, or better stated, the non irrigated fields needed it! Glad it's here. Cooling everything down and making crops happen to feed us!

Thanks, God!
