Chris Wagner has never seen rain like this on his farm east of Longmont — 5 ½ inches since Monday afternoon — but on balance, he figures it’s a boon to the area’s drought-choked agriculture. “As far as crops and fields go, for the most part it’s a blessing,” Wagner said. “But you hate to get caught up on yearly rainfall totals in a couple of days. You’d rather have it spread out over the year.”
