More substantial rainfall this week in the Rockford area has farmers rejoicing and one downtown Rockford coffee-drinking pedestrian jumping for joy.

I'll give this guy a 9 for his jump without spilling a drop of his drink from Rockford Roasting Co.. He didn't quite stick his landing. But the bigger prize is the life and health he got to keep by not stumbling into oncoming traffic. His fate, as you'll see at the very end, would've been very different. He lives to sip and jump again.
