We have gotten over 5 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. Many of my plans for the weekend are on hold I will still run the smoker. The garden is looking like a lake will be interesting to see what will survive?

Rain is a rotten trick. As for your garden, I think the water will survive for a little while at least lol.

 

Don't feel bad about getting your weekend dampened by weather. I smoked the Gilson starter today. Then Dad had a few other things fail on the other pieces of equipment. If you ever need to know how many tilling mechanisms it takes to till a garden, the answer is four so far... not sure how much higher that number will go....

JD., We have had over 8" in the last 48 hrs. I know what you mean, I really need to mow, but can't get the grass dry enough to do so between showers.

Yeah they are predicting rain everyday through wednesday and the lawn is about 8 inches high now.

I had heard there was a ton of rain around San Antonio,, i dead and several missing. I spent 4 months in San Antonio and Austin back in 84. They do not build bridges across creeks down there. They use low water crossings and have posts marked with water depth over the road. They so rarely get water over the roads people do not realize how little water it takes to wash a car off the road.

That and they just don't think about what they are doing while driving. I have never had to drive so defensively in my life as I have living here.

Well our rain has stopped for a while, I was able to get all the grass mowed. I had weeds that were 3 feet tall in places, I got those as well. I then sprayed roundup on anything I can't mow.

I cleaned the chicken coop, and weeded the garden. I have the smoker ready to go in the morning.

Strange weather all over. It seems to be colder than normal in the East and we also seem to be getting a lot of rain. I know some areas of Texas need rain after a couple of dry years but it would be nice if you didn't get it all in one day!

JD., I agree. We really need a whole lot of rain, I just wish it would spread itself out over a couple weeks, not hours.

You got that right!! If traffic is not moving fast enough on the 4 lane they will drive off of it anywhere and race down the frontage roads. That took some getting used to all our 4 lanes are closed access. They make my commute to Des Moines seem tame.

You guys got drenched down there, Brian! Hope it eases off for a few days!

Looks like we will get a break this week. Mostly a chance of showers all week but I'm hoping things will dry out enough to get some gardening done.

Parts of upstate NY and parts of Vermont got 3 feet of snow this week end, crazy spring.
