Three-inches of rain…three-and-a-half inches of rain…too much rain for the rain gauge to hold. That’s how much rain was received over Palo Alto County Tuesday night and Wednesday  morning. The lake is full, pouring over many docks, and fields of water can be found throughout the county. It looks as though residents will have a respite from the rain until the weekend, when there is again a chance of thunderstorms.
