I need some rain on a lot of this place - Saturday we had over an inch at the house, 2 miles down hill in the main big pasture (rangeland) we got 11/100ths. I still have feed, can survive on it for another year, but I need some ponds filled. Can't water entire herd until next July or August on one well.

Our year to date amounts are less than we normally get in just July and August.

Sometimes you do have to throw out the babies with the bath water.
