Prayer for Rain 2006

On July 30, 2006, Mayor Miller, the City Council, County Judge Head, and the County Commissioners Court called the South Plains to pray and fast for rain based on dismal summer projections for the cotton crop and other water concerns.  There was and undeniable turn-around:  The first 7 months of 2006 recorded an average of .69 inches below normal each month August recorded .99 above normal.  Both of these statistics reflect an average of the 40 reporting stations on the South Plains.  Then, the rain on Sunday, September 3, 2006 set a record for that date in history of total rainfall.  It also was the wettest single day since June 2000.  Since records have been kept (1911) it is the 60th wettest single day on record in Lubbock!
