Plentiful rain

GIFT TO EARTH: Last weekend’s showers may have put a damper on outside plans for some residents but it was much needed because of a dry winter. According to local weather observer Dan Frerichs, precipitation measured Friday through Monday totalled 4.32 inches compared to 1.6 inches a year ago at the same time. Dee Atkinson, who lives southwest of Gothenburg, snapped this photograph showing 4 inches in the family gauge.
