Good heavens. KELO weather said it was going to rain around here and this time it actually rained a bit like they predicted. Now Reliance, SD weather radio is warning of flood danger in S Central SD including Tripp, Todd, Mellette, etc. I just checked local weather at Winner three-day weather Looks like this flurry of rain has so far drizzled, rained, and misted in about 1.5 inches of precipitation. Update of Apr 18, 2016--- Total now up to around 2 inches and still misting and raining.
I saw pheasants sitting up in trees as Robins or Blackbirds would and deer hunkered down under bushes. Of course I did not have my camera with me then.
We need the moisture, but after a couple days of this, a bit of blue sky and sunshine would feel good.
What I still don't understand about the Reliance, SD weather radio is why that station never broadcasts weather conditions in Winner, SD. Some days the roughly 60 miles north and south between Reliance and Winner means the weather is remarkably different in the two areas. Strangely, other SD weather radio stations do broadcast information about Winner, SD weather. KZZZ60 (Channel 7) is usually the only weather station available here on our car radio.
