Out with a whimper

1:37 pm CDT, Apr 18, 2013 | By Steve Bowman

The rain has gradually ceased. It's been just raining, even sprinkling at times. The much-awaited, much-feared storm came in with bang and went out with a whimper.

 

The biggest thing you would have to deal with now is  the wind. It's gusting really strong, near the 40 mile mark. But even that's not the worst of it. In the last three hours, the temperature has dropped 20 degrees. Strong winds in a wet environment with 50-degree temps is cold, especially when you start your day with sandals and shorts.

 

Folks are starting to get out a bit. Bobby Lane is on the river casting for trout, as a few others scattered up and down the bank. We see a fish catch or two every once in a while, so for some it's worth sitting in a drizzle.
