It may be a little early to call it a Drought Buster, but we have gotten 2" of rain in the last 24 hrs.

Still supose to rain today and tomorrow.

It's put my garden work on hold, but I don't mind cause we need the rain.

Monday night I did get in two rows of potatoes and some Shallots,Garlic and Onions so that's a start.

We are getting some of that liquid sunshine down here too. Much needed juices for the plants and lakes!

He might be wishing he had kept those pontoons, Doug! 80% of OK is still in severe drought. This should help some!

I figured the 2 inches will evaporate before it hits the ground or get lost in the cracks.

There have been a couple of times I wished I kept them.

Yes thank you. My yard is finally dry enough to do something in.

Well the neighbors pond is fed by runoff from my hill and it is not getting much runoff.

I figured the 2 inches will evaporate before it hits the ground or get lost in the cracks.

We are currently classified as being a Moderate Drought area. The National Weather Service said that while this rain has helped greatly it would take 5 weeks of above normal rains to get the subsoil back to normal.  Right now I need just a short break as I have 3 more fruit trees, a couple blueberries and some strawberries that need to be planted. May have to mud them in Saturday?
