Crossroad area residents will be able to splash in Saturday. Then they'll have to splash out again, if only for a week.
Splash-In at the Russ McEwen Family Aquatic Center will be held from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday. It's free â€” yep, free â€” to the public.
In the past, the event would celebrate the opening of the city pool but not this year.
Big Spring received almost an inch of rain â€” .97 according to the National Weather Service â€” from Thursday's rains.
Forecasters were calling for the possibility of more rain through Saturday night, though without the 60 mph winds and hail many residents reported this morning.
According to the weather service, Thursday's rains split the Midland-Odessa area and neither city received even a trace of rainfall.
Here are some other rainfall totals:
Sweetwater .37, Snyder 2.71, Sterling City 1.57, Abilene Regional Airport 5.9, San Angelo 1.79.
