  • Wet weather causing more delays

    Several people commented on my column last week where I mentioned our rain gauge volunteers and the diligent job they are doing reporting just how much and where the rains are occurring.  We can say with some assurance that this was the wettest April ever in Henry County, with every reporting station recording well more than the old Louisville record of 11.1 inches.  Our reports ranged from a low of 13.21 inches up to 17.90 inches, with most falling in the 14 to 15 inch range.
