Downpour Cheers Lassen Ranchers
October 25th, 1940
All Lassen county was gladdened by the best drenching of the season Thursday and Friday night when a total of .61 of an inch of rain fell in the Susanville area and close to an inch in the surrounding foothill and grazing areas, making a total for the season of 1.28 inches, against .41 of an inch for the corresponding date last year.
The rainfall has softened parched and burned areas in all parts of the county, Big Valley’s potato-land in particular, receiving a heavy drenching.
Streams and sloughs in all parts of the county began to flow early yesterday, after a season of dryness.
Frogs Planted In Lassen Area
Five thousand frogs were planted Thursday and Friday in the sloughs and tule ponds of the Honey Lake Valley from Susanville to Standish.
The frogs were taken from nearly dried up ponds and streams around Nelson in Butte county.
Ten milk cans full were gathered and moved to Lassen County by Capt. E. Wraith of the state fish and game patrol in this area.
The frogs were transplanted to this area at the request of the Lassen county fish and game conservation league.
