Well we've been getting rain....and more rain....Thank the Lord!!!!! This is what it looks like when it pours like it did today. I dumped 3 6/10s out of the rain gauge at the cow pasture....but neighbors nearby reported 4 1/2 in theirs. We had 4 3/4 total here at the house. All of it fell between 9 am and 2 pm today.

Good things come to those who wait Lilly. :wink: (or is that " those who streak"?) :lol:

So glad you got some moisture, hopefully the trend will go back to normal for you folks.

Been a while since I've been on....other things going on that keep me "busy"....

Been raining pretty regular around here....some tornados and heavy rains in the area but I've been spared. Have been getting "normal" rainfall since December, along with the mild weather it is looking like April around here. According to drift on the fences, the creeks did flow about the highest I can remember.

Looking to be a great Spring.

Would that be enough to soak through the top layer of that "caliche desert" and get things greening up again? I know when it really dry here an inch is welcome but doesn't go too far.

If the whiskey spills haven't affected it yet it will probably sound just fine. :D

You know i realy think good whiskey, just gives that old martin a better tone, must be the fumes or sumthin, but it really plays good when there is crown around :wink:
good luck
