Overnight rainfall about a quarter of an inch that comes by the way from the National Weather Service we checked with them up early this morning. And about a quarter of an ancient you know at times in Riverside especially. It rained hard. But apparently Buena didn't sustain it to him beyond just a few minutes the gap but that's kinda how I went to south Wichita to ring very hard for. Just few minutes and quarter really doesn't sound like much but that is when the rain in a very short period of time actually. Today is may twelfth may twelfth is not may twelfth was the nineteenth. May nineteenth when he seventeen in day it was on the stage eight this date. In 1994. That former. First Lady. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis died in New York she was only 64 years old. But you know she's had quite a bit of tragedy in her life Aaliyah and but if Clinton challenges she still.

The movie Ishtar starring Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty made its premiere in bond at the box office star talk about this week just today or two ago. And I were talking about that me and you know.

Might have been one of those things where there was more than one release Stater does a premiere on one date a wide release and other than we were talking about it charges today today is young David made it's premier. And he may have been doing a list of all the worst movies ever made and if stars certainly gets into beyond that religion on at least a few times. As far as the whether last night. But you got doubled back and forth here a little bit but it we got in Riverside weathered an issue or heavy rain and there is fertile there was a there was a severe thunderstorm warning for Sedgwick county. They had some high wind down and boldly in Roseville around that area high wind triggered that one hail. And I went up for a little bit over around and when that was over that it was over in her. But does not not much going on there yeah I did the same thing in and it drove around my neighborhood a little bit but didn't. And in seem much in into. Which are right in the middle of things and now today we have an elevated risk and we are now instead of being on the east edge of it today were on the west edge of a deterrent. And I can see the big Polly gun right now on channel three in front of a cent and Leon's but with Paula gone in and there's a a threat today but again which I was right on the edge again. Does this threat is high like it was yesterday they're saying elevated and nobody's predicting Armageddon today it. Actually one of the one of the predictions I sub eight. They had eight. The forecast looker with a look ahead at what the radar might look like and things started up around here and then kind of intensified after they'd moved past status. What it said may have happened in Al. We'll keep you posted I did not give my lawn mowed did you get you on mode I did not object I wanted us to be. Well rested in case we had. Severe weather coverage so instead of mowing my lawn I went to sleep may be next week. Now although if you you know those Saturday and Sunday may be it'll dry out enough. Maybe or out there. I hope so part of China to during the the rainy season yes it is in a yellow things in Wal-Mart but customers were surprised by what they saw and one of the stores in. One Dina Minnesota. Seems no white tailed deer got confused wandered into the store and ran into a startled customer. Who then tackled it to the ground. Shoppers figure the young animal was searching for a snack Tuesday when it came into the guard the guard considered doors. Tom Grassley who happens to live in deer creek. Says he don't like someone had slugged him with a deer slammed into him. Resnick says his first instinct was to tackle the animal bringing it down on a Pallet of dog food. That must've been a very big deer. Accused of when their big I don't think he gagged and Russell and down. Maybe you know maybe rest recover the dieters eyes on the down. And he and others took the animal outside and set it free so mr. Grassley knew what to do. And I think I saw full grown cold grown deer that things can play. And or 500 towns at least a little blood vessel one Denver now drawn to it I'm not gonna go anywhere near it now. Ms. stay away from Deere and all other. And animals like that and possum and everything else but the all right so what we're gonna keep an eye on the weather again today for you here in south central Kansas.
