"Rain before seven, quit before eleven." It's been raining pretty hard here since about 3 a.m. this morning. When I last checked, there was two and a fourth inches in the rain guage, which includes the six tenths that registered this time yesterday. The drought has been broken, at least for the next two weeks. (We are never over two weeks away from a drought.) Our daughter called that she eloped, so things are looking up. :lol:

Soapweed!!!!

Fabulous!!!! I was just checking out the radar and thinking (scarily enough!!!) that Soapweed, Mrs. Soapweed, Has Been and Saddletramp are gonna have a wet day!!!! I am very happy for you guys.

Can you please direct it due north and then tell it to move west when it gets around the ND/SD state line? :wink:

I hope you guys have a great day (take a bit of time and watch it rain too!!!), hell maybe even go out and dance in the stuff! :lol2:

Cheers to a grand day!

So glad you are getting good moisture up your way-Soapweed-what a great start for the grass! DO you know if there is any grass available for rent this season for spring pairs. An outfit in SD is looking for some grass if it does not change quickly up there. Thanks

My Grandfather always said "Droughts move north " so maybe we are getting Soapweeds drought this year as we can't buy a rain.

We got a half in of rain yesterday, and the map looks as if we may get some more. If feels good to get some moisture. We are sitting better this spring than we have for a long time.

BMR don't send it too far north-were finally getting some moisture up our way-we don't have a very long growing season so a dry spring pretty much hoops us-but we get rain and those 20 hour dayus watch out lol.
