Area gets much needed rain

PRESCOTT – Nevada County received some much-needed rain Wednesday, after nearly a month of hot, dry weather.

Nevada County Judge Mark Glass said he may have gotten one half to an inch of rain at his place, while others said they received 1.5 inches of rain. The amount of rain didn’t matter because, as Glass said, it was a good rain and all of it went into the ground. This, he added, was unlike normal summer rain where the area is deluged with so much water most of it runs off before it can soak into the earth.

However, he added, more rain is needed to help the grass and hay situation, though he called this shower a blessing as it was a “good, slow, soaking rain.”
