    Most of the state got 1 to 2″ of rain. Only a small part got above 4″, and the only spot that got 8″ was at the highest elevations above 14,000 ft – which you would expect.

    It takes more than a quick week of rain to reverse an extreme drought. Remember that earlier this year, the FL panhandle had pretty decent drought, and it took about 20″ of rain for it to reverse.

    Looks kind of wet there if you ask me. Classic droughtflood?

    It’s funny that they have us in such a dark red down here when it sure doesn’t look like an extreme drought here.
