Rain forecast

Postby snoopdog » Sat Aug 11, 2018 7:04 am

We have a pretty good chance of rain all week , so I am going roll the dice on some commercial fertilizer , since I broke the floor chain in the litter truck and haven't had time to get it unloaded and fixed . We just got to have some fall grass, got to .

Hope you get it. We have a light rain falling now but it's not going to last long.

Pretty much took our chance out too.

It's rained some here, just about every day this week, but usually not much. Black clouds come in, lots of thunder lightening and the rain pours, but 15-20-30 minutes later at most, it's all gone and clear skies return, the clouds usually off to the West Northwest. We are green & grass is growing so I guess it adds up. Pond may have come up a couple 3 inches but I doubt it.

I was still in the up to five inch band as of last night. Would like to put some hay down but it will have to wait. I still have some kinks to work out of the baler plus a dozen other things to fix it seems.

Just like always they dropped the chances for us down to an inch. snoopdog Looks like they're raising what you might get.

Ended up with 7/10ths. Started Drizzling about 6PM Saturday night and had a couple good showers come through Sunday morning about 11:30 AM and 5PM. Now nothing in the forecast for the next 10 days.

Just checked and I have an additional 1.1 to my total. Funny waking up this morning and seeing fog in August.
