WAYNESBURG, Pa. (AP) — It's just a sprinkle, but it counts enough for people in a southwestern Pennsylvania town to celebrate Rain Day.

The Washington Observer-Reporter says (http://bit.ly/1mZKwUP ) the brief precipitation in Waynesburg makes for the 114th time in 141 years rain has fallen in the town on July 29.

The town's street festival includes the crowning of a Miss Rain Day.

The newspaper says the rain was reported by the mayor and a Rain Day committee member, on whose notebook a few drops fell.

Every year a celebrity wagers a hat that it won't rain in Waynesburg on July 29. This year's loser is actress Patricia Heaton.
