(5/24/14) Wisconsin was pounded by hail and gulley-washers with up to a half-foot of rain this month.
And even after all that, authorities warn Memorial Day Weekend campers to be careful with fire. D-N-R ranger-and-forester John Gillen of Rhinelander says things can change quickly, even with all the recent dampness. He says the risk for forest fires will grow if it stays dry for a few days. That's because leaves, twigs, and branches can dry out very quickly before the spring green-up is fully completed.
