My one F935 mowing machine is down with bad drive shaft. The other F935 needs deck work.  Being I couldn't chop this afternoon, I swapped the good deck to the driveable F935.  Mowed just a few minutes & then another downpour rolled in on me.  No silage chopping tomorrow.  I have a pic on my phone, but it's a pretty dumb phone & won't download to my PC.

 

Just sent the pic to my email from my phone.

Yeah,couldn't beg, borrow, or steal rain when we truly needed it, now.........

 

This afternoon's deluge was just a small red blip on radar, not 1/4 the size of our small county.  The whole state to rain on and it had to get me.

But it's moisture! We need a bunch down here again with the near 100° days we have had. Not much relief in site for good rain!

Looks pretty wet! We had a bit of rain here last night. It's probably only rained for 3 or 4 days since mid July. It's dry here but since we don't get the heat you have it's not near as bad.

We've been getting some rain pretty near everyday for the past week.  Mainly in the late afternoon when it is the hottest.

Wet or not, I got most of my mowing done this evening.  One area has 5" or so of standing water, so that spot didn't get mowed.  It was mow it now, or have windrows the size to bale.

From what I heard on the news we had a tornado touch down about 20 miles south of us yesterday.  I know we got a lot of rain is just a short period, sat out side watching and listening to the lightening storm.   One of the daughters called about 1:30 and said she was told to seek cover but by then the sky was clearing up around us.  Up here a tornado touchdown is big news.

Seeing this photo reminded me of an item I saw on a local (150 mile drive) online auction site.  Must be you have more wind down there since you use the whole tire.

No, not a wind issue, just being cheap.  We get all the whole tires we want free.  I would like to switch to semi sidewalls though, as they are much cleaner, stack well, and don't hold water (mosquitoes).

Yea, in same boat...literally. No rain for a month, we got all of last month's rain and then some in the last 3 days. Woke up to a flooded laundry room in basement, down spout was clogged and of course gutter ran over right above the basement window well, water came in through window.

 

We had the same thing last night as you. Flash thunderstorm, looked at radar..... only red over us, rest of area within 100 miles was spotless.

Milked the cows, mowed some, then got the one F935's deck in the shop & replaced the spindle bearings on the right side.  Need to cut some metal & put deck partitions back in.  Then we unloaded our little jag of hay off our 16' trailer.  After lunch I'm loading this trailer full of junk iron.  The pile is taking over the spot by the shop door.

  Rain all broke up and what was left went to Cincy...I think maybe Marty got spared this rain???
