The skies opened up this weekend.

Just as my grass had started turning yellow and brown.  Much of North Dakota received beneficial rains late Friday night, Saturday morning, and overnight Saturday.

Central North Dakota received the bulk of the rain over this period.  Impressive totals in Ward County where some areas received as much as 4 inches of rain. A pocket south of Washburn saw 2.8 inches of rain.  Same with northeast of Glen Ullin in Burleigh County where 3.29 inches of rain fell.  The high watermark though went to an area southeast of St. Anthony (about 20 miles) where a whopping 6.3 inches of rain fell.

In fact, some areas might have seen too much rain.
