Rain from the past weekend did more than dampen a few spirits and cancel outdoor activities.
Weather watchers recorded almost 4 inches of rain in Roane County over the period that saw almost steady showers for about 48 hours.
“As of yesterday morning, they had 3.9 inches at the [Kingston TVA] Fossil Plant,” said David Gaffin, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Morristown.
“At Rockwood, they had 3.81 inches,” he said. “We had another place in Kingston that had 3.77 inches.”
