Several days of rain, including both days of the weekend, have spoiled the recreational plans of many; but the rain has been a real blessing to the area. Those reporting totals around the valley to the National Weather Service have measured nearly three-quarters of an inch of slow, soaking rain so far. Yellowstone reports over an inch and a quarter in some areas of the park. The rain that is running off is helping fill the area’s reservoirs with Jackson Lake now reported to be at 92% of its capacity and the entire upper Snake River system at 72% of capacity. Firefighting interests here are optimistic for the long-term results that the precipitation potentially brings with it for the summer season ahead.
