About: Comments re article 92505 Charles Marshburn wants to know rainfall from Harvey visit
By Ed Waggener
When Charles Marshburn asked, on Saturday, September 2, 2017, "How many inches of rain has Columbia had from Harvey's visit?" one might have expected that answers would be varied.
And they have been, ranging from a low of 3.9" from the Mesonet Station in Columbia, reported by Dan Wilson of Russell Springs, KY, to a high of 6.2 inches reported by George M. Rice, of the Egypt Community, just south of Green River Lake, who took his measurements, with his own raingauge.
There are many answers in between:
First, we got a letter from Charles Marshburn's occasional nemesis, The COF:
Four and three quarter at Dun Roman. That was on top to one and a quarter earlier in the week.'Tractor man' is the COF's (Crusty ol' Fool, his self applied pen name) affectionate? reference to Charles Marshburn.
Pam Dailey has three day total of 6.5 inches, unofficially at top of Wheeler Hill
Pam Dailey wrote: "We have a gigantic rain gauge sitting on top of the hill between Flatwood and Sparksville. We did a three day measurement, having to dump the gauge when it hit the top. Total was 6.5 inches. Unofficially, Charlie. Officially, we got a new roof leak!"
Joyce Reliford, at Sparksville on Wheeler Hill Road, reports 5.5 inches
"On the hill here at Sparksville the rain gauge showed 5.5 inches of rain," Joyce Reliford wrote, pretty much aligning with other observers in her area of Adair County.
Debbie Nobles reports Bliss guage topping 5 inches
"My rain gauge topped the 5" mark here in Bliss," Debbie Nobles wrote.
James Roberts pretty much summed it up
"From all estimates, depending on where you live, the the rainfall for Columbia/Adair County was between 4.5" to 6.25". Hope this helps," James Roberts reported.
Our thanks to everyone. We hope that this weather diary entry might be useful in future climate study, in big or small ways. And, though the report might not have been posted quickly enough for the famously impatient questioner, we hope it suffices.
