It’s planning a check-writing party.
George & Co. Jewelers in Dickson City, PA, took a big chance with its 4th of July Rain Day Promotion. The store promised that if it rained at least half an inch on Independence Day, their jewelry would be free.

"We are excited to announce that we just received the official results and all weather stipulations were met," George & Co. posted Monday on Facebook.
"According to the NOAA Airport recording, there was actually 1.14 inches of rain during the twelve hour period! If you qualified for the promotion, please be patient we will be contacting you shortly to congratulate you and invite you to our very special check writing party!"
