From the May 1, 1936 News Record:

Jupiter Pluvius smiled on Campbell County yesterday and 0.17 of an inch of moisture fell, according to the official government weather report furnished by Allen Hunter, co-operative observer. The moisture fell in the form of rain and snow and made country roads slightly muddy. Although the moisture is a boon to farmers and their crops, sheepmen are hoping for clearing skies as most of them are beginning to lamb.
