Rain, rain, come again!

Following the driest spring on record in east Tennessee (only 5.67" of rain for this spring, including only 0.76" for all of May!), these dry fields near the Tri-Cities Airport in Sullivan County could use a good rain. While much of the area received a soaking yesterday, the airport reported only about a quarter of an inch of rain. So it comes as no surprise that the drought monitor has most of our region listed as being in a "severe drought."
