A week of off-and-on rain soaks Marion County

Overcast skies for much of last week resulted in about 4 inches of rain in Marion County after a long dry start to 2017. This view from the French Creek Bridge along Kanza Road captures the rise of the water level in the creek that connects directly to Marion Reservoir, as well as welcome relief for contented ducks swimming amid a refection of clouds that promise even more showers this week, according to weather forecasters.
