Still waiting for water in Weld: Moisture doesn’t make a dent

Greeley waited 52 days for any kind of significant moisture.

Following Tuesday’s storm — a light mixture of rain, sleet and minimal snowfall in the surrounding areas — the wait for water continues.

This week’s precipitation was merely a tease of what’s actually needed to rebound from the area’s historically dry winter and early spring, farmers and municipal water officials agree. And more dry days are ahead; meteorologists say there’s no more snow or rain in store for Greeley anytime soon.
