Well that...and the widespread nearly 1.0" of QPE to help with the drought. I'd say this system was at least helpful with that. Society doesn't depend on individuals' gardens, so that's just a personal issue. I don't have a garden and my few plants fit nicely inside my apartment, so I have sustained zero damage from this.Well this thing fizzled into nothing but cold temps and a dusting of snow. Hopefully the snow they got in the hills will help with the fire, but all this system did for Metro and the plains was kill peoples gardens. Hopefully the farming crops held up. Last thing we need is more potential crop shortages after the Iowa derecho.
North zone: Fire behavior will remain minimal for at least the next seven days until the area dries out and warms up.
