Down with dust
27 July, 2006 - 20:54
FINALLY got some rain this morning. Nearly 3 inches here at the farm and 2.5 at RBGR. I was going to start early today with more fencing we're doing at RBGR, but Amber got up to let the cat out at 5 AM and whispered to me that it was raining. Rain is good news for sleepy farmers. In case you weren't aware, we are in the epicenter of a very severe drought. Hay rolls down the highway like water to a sinking ship. On this U.S. drought map
we are in the extreme/exceptional drought area. 3 inches goes a long way towards helping things. Last significant rain we had here was nearly three months ago. Ouch.
