What a beautiful storm. Here’s the 3 day rainfall map from Urban Drainage.

Here’s a report from The Fort Morgan Times (Dan Barker). From the article:

A series of cloudbursts throughout the day dropped about two inches of rain on the area in 24 hours…

Farmers are happy because the moisture will help the crops and the benefit outweighs the relatively small amount of damage, said Morgan County Extension Agent Marlin Eisenach. The official Morgan County weather monitor at the Fort Morgan Cemetery showed the area received about 2-1/4 inches of rain during the 24 hours ending this morning…

Probably about 10 percent of the corn was in the ground, which may mean some delays getting the rest planted, but even that planted later will be going into moist soil to help it get started, Eisenach said. Corn that was already planted will especially benefit from the rain, he said…

The city of Brush saw some high water in some intersections, but no real flooding, said City Administrator Monty Torres.
