TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Some rain trickling into the Wabash Valley this afternoon, and it's become so common this fall, it's easy to forget about the record setting drought of the summer.
It was a difficult time for many business owners relying on the weather. The recent rainfall has helped some businesses. One golf course is rebounding after the dry times.
On a pleasant fall morning, while you're waking up, golfers are teeing off.
It's a common fall scene across the Hulman Links in Terre Haute.
But just 2 months ago, the green could only be found on the actual greens.
"We pretty much got to the point where our fairways were gone, we just didn't have enough water to keep the fairways and greens both, so," Ed Grayless the manager of Hulman Links.
When we caught up with Ed back in August, the fairways weren't the only thing slowed by dry weather.
The normal summer flood of golfers wasn't quite as big as years past because of the drought.
"We've got a lot of loyal customers; you know they stayed with us for the most part. But it's just a tough situation," he explained.
Then came the rain and in a short time Ed and his crew have worked the course back into shape.
"About a month ago, the weather started cooling off and our maintenance crew did a great job of reseeding, as you can tell behind me it's come back a lot it really has, it's amazing how quickly it did heal up," he said.
