Wow! That would be too much if it weren't already so dry to begin with. That will fill the creeks and ponds a bit. We only got about an inch and lots of lightening.

nice rainfall Helen. Like Christie, we got about 1 1/4" and looks like we all might get a little more tonight. Hope everyone is well through the storms tonight.

We got nothing out of that one but got 2 inches last night and no winds to speak of. I wonder where they spotted the tornadoes at Willard. That got our attention!

Glenda, I thought about you when they mentioned Willard on the weather channel. So glad you're okay.

It was a rather wild night here in Joplin (didn't enjoy the weather channel mentioning us, either!), but no wind to speak of -- just very heavy downpour. Had 1.75 inches in the rain gauge.

Hope everyone weathered the storms last night. My rain gauge was between 3 and 3 1/4" this morning. Definately will help fill the ponds.

We got 2.3 more inches. No damage here, just lots of hedge apples on the ground.
Glenda - I think the tornado might have been a little west of Willard, not sure. Glad there wasn't any bad damage or at least not that I've heard of. Someone in Republic lost some outbuildings.
