Its hard to say for certain, but Iola may have just experienced the wettest 12-month stretch in the towns history.
A thunderstorm that blasted through the area early Tuesday dumped .61 inches of rain in Iola, followed by another thunderstorm with .65 inches by Friday morning, putting us at 46.83 inches of rain since Jan. 1.
It could remain bone dry for the rest of the year, and the city still would be more than 6 inches above a normal year.
