Just Dane County being Dane County
Flood advisory issued for Dane County
It’s almost hard to believe, given that southern Wisconsin has been in the grips of a drought.
The National Weather Service on Wednesday morning issued a flood advisory for central Dane County.
That area has been hit with 1.5 inches of rain as about 6:40 a.m. Another storm is in the works and could dump up to another half inch of rain on that portion of Dane County, the weather service said.
Runoff from the storm could cause minor flooding along small streams and in low-lying areas.
The weather service said some areas of Black Earth, Cottage Grove, Fitchburg, Madison, McFarland, Middleton, Mount Horeb, Sun Prairie, Waunakee and Shorewood Hills could experience minor flooding.
Let’s get this straight… Southern Wisconsin has not seen a damn drop of rain since early May, but it rains 1-1/2″ and we better brace ourselves for flooding? Yes I know the article finally states “minor flooding” the last two words of the piece. Honestly, the corn and whatever other “crops” grown in Dane County likely didn’t even recognize the rain. I don’t mean to make fun of flooding, but I just don’t anticipate houses and cars floating away over a few inches of rain that will evaporate by tomorrow. Carry on. –CCWriter
