    We have heard a lot of tornado warnings and watches. Do you know the difference between the two?

  • Rain may affect this year’s corn crops

    A friend of mine posted on Facebook that if April showers bring May flowers, look out.

    So far he has been wrong since it has been May showers too.

    The Carroll County Mesonet station reported 12.38 inches of rain for April, which is about 10 inches more than we received a year ago. We are already at more than 3 inches for May. I have been down to Henderson where the river was higher and there is a lot of land flooded down that way and the radio was reporting that the entire town of Smithland was being evacuated. As bad as it is here, someone else has it worse.
