    The drought is over in this area as we have had approximately seven inches of rain within the past week. According to Cecilia Masonet, we had 3.7 inches of rain Sunday evening within 90 minutes. Our front yard and field looked like a small lake for awhile, but we were so thankful for the rain. This should be enough for our late garden corn to mature well, since it is tasseling and putting on ears.
