MODESTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Nearly 48 hours after the rainy weekend ended, Modesto farmer John Bos was still cleaning up.

“We were literally pumping for 36 hours just to get all the water off,” Bos told FOX40.

At Bos’ Dutch Hollow Farms, the downpour dampened one the busiest weekends of the season.

“Saturday, an absolute zoo over here,” Bos recalled. “It was the most people we’ve ever had here at the farm, ever.”

The wet weather forced Bos to close Dutch Hollow early Sunday and all of Monday to clean up, which caused a significant financial loss.
