PADUCAH, KY - There's a seventies-era song with a lyric that says, "Rainy days and Mondays always get me down." But after the hottest July on record, and a drought not seen in decades, the sound of rain on Monday, August 13, was a great way to start a new work week.

Meteorologist Rick Shanklin of the National Weather Service says that Livingston and Crittenden Counties received the most rain on Monday, with totals between 1 - 1.5 inches.
In terms the rain providing any aid to farmers at this point, Shanklin says it may be beneficial to soybeans, but it will also be helpful to livestock producers in providing hay for their animals.
