Wednesday's rainfall helped boost Colorado River Municipal Water District reservoir levels around the region, but according to local officials, the increases are small when compared to the “big picture” the current water shortage has left West Texans to face.
According to meteorologists with the National Weather Service Office in Midland, Big Spring saw a total rainfall of approximately .23 of an inch, while Snyder received .18 of an inch and the city of Midland saw .27 of an inch. All totals are currently unofficial.
Some things are just meant to stay the same.
Unforeseen events have forced the 2012 Howard/Glasscock Relay For Life back to Blankenship Field. The event was scheduled to be held at Memorial Stadium this year.
“We were hoping to do something different this year, but due to the installation of turf at Memorial Stadium, we are going to be moving the event back to where its roots are,” Manny Negron, event chairman, said.
