Record-wet October closing with even more precipitation
October 29, 2009

The month of October has been an exceptionally wet one for the Upper Midwest, where Grand Island has already broken its monthly record for precipitation (the previous-wettest October was in 1914) and a huge section of central Iowa sits under a late-season flash flood watch. And a heavy winter storm is working its way across Nebraska today. On one hand, the good news is that the drought monitor is clear all across Iowa and Nebraska for once. But the wet weather is going to keep a lot of farmers from getting the crops harvested, which is bad for them and bad for the local economy. It's also going to make a mess of plans to land-apply sludge from wastewater lagoons around the region.
