Rain dampens weekend crowd downtown

April 29, 2012 | 6:16 p.m. CDT
Morning thunderstorms rolled through Columbia and continued into the afternoon Sunday. Although the rain stopped later in the day, as shown by the view atop the Fifth and Walnut parking garage, the town remained relatively quiet compared to most weekend afternoons. In the past 24 hours, it has rained almost two inches, and is expected to continue on and off until Wednesday.
