According to recent weather updates, the month of July was the hottest month for Hutchinson County by far.
Local longtime residents would agree with that statement.
Charles Gillingham of Borger stated, “It’s the hottest it’s been since I’ve been here. I remember we got nine inches of rain one year, and we may not get there this time around.” He continued, “It’s a ‘remember when’ type of year that people can tell their grandchildren about.”
