Today's wet weather is one for the books, in just hours rain dumped almost one inch in Grand Junction. This is the most rain the city has seen since 1931 when 0.79 inches in 1931.

The new record is 0.93 inches and for many, that moisture is welcome but the rain caused headaches for motorist and homeowners around the county. The rain started late last night and brought some unexpected challenges for those in the Grand Valley flooding neighborhoods and submerging cars in mud.

On I-70 near Debeque a convertible hydroplaned and smashed into a canyon wall. Other cars got stuck in mud in Clifton, and two cars almost drove into a canal in Palisade.
