Along the Swale: February 12, 2019

We started the week out with robust rains here on Glencoe Swale. Waters have receded back to normal levels for this time of year…

February 12, 2019 Landscapes were not normal today.

Precipitation amounts recorded in the Glencoe West rain gauge measured: 1.47 inches on February 11 and 2.75 inches on February 12. The total of 4.22 inches of rain created many areas of high water.
