     Title: Storm swings through Dalhart on its way east

By AARON GRAVES

For the second weekend in a row, Dalhart was rained upon. Only four isolated storms popped up on radar Saturday, and one decided to swing through town on its way east. The result was 0.18” of rain, as recorded at the airport, and yet another beautiful rainbow. This brings our monthly total to 0.24”, according to the National Weather Service in Amarillo.
