30 Years Ago (Feb. 4, 1982)
Annual rainfall for Jan. is 3.5 inches. Trimble County had had about 6.5 inches and Saturday another 2 inches of rainfall was added, sending creeks romping again. While rain was in this area, a 200-300 mile stretch about 50 miles wide had 12 inches of snow for St. Louis to Indianapolis. One-tenth inch of rain equals one inch of snow, thus we could have awaken to a snow-paralysis state on Sunday morning.
