It was a pleasant 62.0 F at 05:53 this morning in the Basin. A little more rain and I'll feel the tug!

0.16" in the Basin yesterday - Not much...but...the forecast for the next 10 days looks good. The rain is coming.

I was looking for historical rainfall data and stumbled across the Iowa Mesonet, which has a nice visualization to help you see how actual rainfall compares with expected rainfall in any given month. For example, here's data for the Basin

Click "select from map" to select a different weather station. The data seems to go back a year or two depending on the station.
I roamed and rambled, and I foller'ed my footsteps
   To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
   And all around me a voice was a'sounding
   This land was made for you and me

Nice find! Thanks.
