Started Saturday about 11 AM with a light shower, then about 4PM began to have heavy storms which continued on off and on through the night. Rain gauge at ranch only a 4" tube, but a straight sided bucket had 6 inches in it. Forecast for today is for more storms. Had some light showers two weeks ago which sprouted the Texas wintergrass, so now should have a little green for the cows until frost which is usually late Nov here. Will have to continue feeding hay, of course, but the animals can get a little green as well.
We got rain too !!!! Yay! we need it so bad. We got some a week or so ago that had strong winds with it and brought down some trees in the area, one I know was a dead tree but one fell right in front of a neighbors house and it was very much alive, They are lucky it didn't hit their house. Yesterdays rain was a nice, slow, most of the day rain. Lovely!
Wonderful indeed! We got rain here, too! Only about one inch, but slow and steady throughout yesterday afternoon and through the night. Already things are starting to look green-ish. My little Weather Channel screen saver is giving an extended forecast of 50% chance of rain on Wednesday for our area. That would be very cool!
Just spitting rain here. Our grass is green but very short and not really useful. I do see some of the hay field that have been fertilized are starting to grow a bit. If it stays warm enough they folk might get a bit of a hay crop. Guess we'll have to wait and see...
Im praying for you guys! Hopefully you will get rain soon. We here in Georgia have been blessed, gentle rains and cooler nights. The grass that I thought had surely died is growing like crazy , trying to make me mow again before frost!
We finally gpt some rain yesterday, just a small shower early and then last night we got a good rain. Everything is SOOO dry, we need more showers.
Eufaula, I was in Georgia last week, the northern part, we stayed on top of Lookout Mountain. It rained the first day we were there and the last day. Trees were beautiful and changing colors unlike ours, which are mostly brown or turning brown, around here.
We had snow flurries today and calling for winter storm watch for Sat. night into sunday about 4 inches or so,yuck to early for snow.I keep thinking baby chicks in the spring,my new incubator ordering eggs and chicks and so on,might help me get through the long winter,no warm up for us until may of next year.
