My rain gauge showed an inch of precipitation fell in Genoa on Sunday. The total for Minden isn't posted yet, but according to records, this has been the second wettest October with 2.57 inches so far. The record was set in 2010 with 3.49 inches.
It will be cool this evening, but the rain's not expected to return until 11 p.m., so nice enough for trick or treating. Trick or Treat Safety Street is 3-8 p.m. tonight at the CVIC Hall. Expect a high temperature today of 56 degrees with the wind out of the southwest at 5-10 mph.
