The spring rain, as it almost always does in Baker County, finally arrived.

With the summer solstice just four days away, a soggy storm interrupted what was on pace to be the driest spring around here since World War II.

As of 9 a.m. today, almost half an inch of rain had fallen at the Baker City Airport since Tuesday afternoon.

That isn’t nearly enough to erase the rainfall deficit for June, or for the spring.

But the dousing did push the precipitation total, for the period starting April 1, to 1.66 inches. 

See more in Wednesday's issue of the Baker City Herald.
