Beginning to wonder?  Today started out at 52 degrees, and they are predicting 100% chance of rain.

The next two days highs are supose to be in he low 40's and tomorrow they are predicting a Rain/Snow mix. Extended forcast is for rain through Monday.

At least the early garden is planted so when it warms up we should get a crop[.

 

National Weather Service has announced that the Drough is pretty much over in Iowa.

April 2013 goes in the record books ans the wettest on record since records were kept(141 yrs.

With an average of 6.6" of rain over the whole state, and cold by a 4 degree average.

 

The bright spot in all this is there will be fresh sauteed Asparagus on my plate tonight!!

Glad to hear you guys got some good moisture! We could use a good drenching rain here to fill the lakes back up some!

It's been nice here lately! Black flies are out though. Glad to hear the drought is over for you. I hope that the moisture extends out to all those other folks who were dry last year.

Yes and it is accumulating in Des Moines and now they are saying it will snow till early afternoon tomorrow.

Now they are saying up to 7" of snow. I may be taking the rake off and mounting the blade on the Ford this evening?  I saw two big John Deere's(one tracked) out in the field planting corn yesterday.?
