Ain't complaining one bit either way.

No moisture here and none in the forecast. I am happy about that because anything falling from the sky here now would be white. The longer it is until winter starts the shorter it will be.

I don't think we got any rain last night. If we did, it was just sprinkles...ugh Maybe it was enough to keep the rye alive..

We were sitting here watching the news and I heard a noise. Muted the TV and it was raining. Don't know how much rain we got over night, but once the sun is up we'll know.....

Woke last night and it sounded like it was pouring. Leaves coming off the trees all at once I reckon. It dam sure didn't rain.

Had a single line thunder storm go through last night. Rained some but not much. I think I'm going to hold off cow shopping until January for our new farm. I'll have enough hay on hand for sure if I wait a bit longer.

I’ve had that happen. Sucks when you get excited just to have your bubble popped by leaves.
