The Calhoun CZO received nearly 25 cm rain in 24-hr Sunday 4 October.  Paul Schroeder shot a photo of Ryan Fimmen's 2004 "Tyger Stripe" soil excavation that was completely inundated with water several days after the rain (10/10/2015), despite its location on the highest part of the landscape, on the highest order interfluve in all of Union County.
