More rain

Postby Faster horses » Mon Jun 13, 2005 8:53 am

Rain moved in here last night about 10:30 and we had over a half an inch when we got up this morning and it is still raining.

Last year we couldn't buy a half inch of rain.

Horseshoer is coming from Wibaux to shoe some horses for us and he said they had almost an inch. He also said that when it warms up the mosquitos will be big enough to rope!!!!!

Sure is soggy out there. JUST THE WAY WE LIKE IT!

Raining again here too. Had to set up a portable corral beside the road so we could get cows to pasture. We ve had around 17 inches in the last week and a half. Everything is under water. But the grass is sure tall!! :-)
Canadian Beef.... A supreme delicious product!

SEVENTEEN INCHES OF RAIN IN 10 DAYS? And we thought we were wet!! I don't think I have ever been ANYWHERE that has had 17 inches of rain in 10 days. That could be enough rain...

All I can imagine is the size of those mosquitos that are growing in your swamps-- May need twin .50 calibers to bring those down :lol:

Here I was mumbling about a few drown out areas in some of the bad draining lower areas of the irrigated fields--We only got about 3 inches in 10 days- and wouldn't have had the problem except we had irrigated all the hayfields the week before...And our turkey size skeeters are starting to hatch- supposed to be around 80 on Wed, so that should really bring them out...

You must be going to end up with some terrible crop and hay damages... :cry: :(

OT, they are calling for 89 degrees here on Wednesday. Everyone is hoping we don't get the great white combine along with those warmer temps. So far the weather bureau hasn't said much about precip at that time. We will keep our fingers crossed.

Great white combine? help There's a bunch of white combines in my pasture now. Harvesting away.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
