Today 15th in row with no rain here

September 6, 2013

    Make it 15, an unlucky 15. Today marks the 15th consecutive day Decatur has received no significant rainfall.
    And the National Weather Service gives little hope of that changing in the days ahead.
    Much of Indiana keeps drying out with little rainfall in recent weeks, according to an Associated Press story. The U.S. Drought Monitor’s weekly report released Thursday lists much of Indiana’s midsection and parts of its northern counties as abnormally dry, which is the lowest drought condition.
