The last two days the Good Lord has blessed us with rain.  Most of the state has been in a severe drought and this will surely help, it will not cure it but it will help a bunch.  I a very accurate (and expensive) rain gauge and when it stopped raining around 2:30 this afternoon I took it off the post and brought it into the house.  My granddaughter and I measured our 4.27 inches.  Man did we need that.  Maybe my wheat will do some good now.  Whats more, they say we have a 40% chance both Saturday and next Wednesday for more rain, up to 1/4 inch each time.

Wow, when you finally get it, you really get it!  Hope that wheat takes off!  Hope you continue to get rains when you need it.  You've been through enough!

I was watching the weather tonight and it looked like a real good storm system down your way.  Glad to see things maybe turning around for you.

Yup, I have over 3" and more on the way. I was wondering if we would ever get a good rain.
