Feeling overwhelmed by recent rains and flooding? Hey, it's just 'par for the course".

This guy sez so.

Quoted in Storm drops nearly 9 inches of rain and more - maybe much more - is on the way.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 8/27/2018)
The heavy rains Sunday night centered over Ozaukee and Washington counties. Port Washington saw 8.5 inches, Saukville 6.7 inches and Grafton 5.34 inches. It's the third storm to have dropped more than 7 inches of rain in some areas in a little more than a week across southern Wisconsin.

At 9:20 AM 15.33" was reported out of Cross Plains, WI setting a new 24hr rainfall record for Wisconsin. The previous record for 24hr precipitation was 11.72" at Mellon in 1946.  (On June 20th.)

La Crosse area digs out from massive flooding; Coon Valley takes major hit as rain won't relent.  (La Crosse Tribune, 8/27/2018)

Other pars for the course (August 26, 2018):
  • 9.98 - Westby
  • 7.42 - Stoddard
  • 7.25 - Cashton
