"You're not alone," laughed National Weather Service meteorologist Al Voelker.


"From right around Sioux Falls into eastern Nebraska and Kansas we had a huge system of thunderstorms and those storms took a lot of moisture from the (your) system. The precipitation band, instead of being widespread, was more confined to a smaller area around the surface low. So northern areas really didn't get much."
