We have went without rain for about 4 weeks, got some yesterday and looks good for more rain next 3 days. We got about 1/2" yesterday, north of us got over 4" with more moving in today. Boy, we really need some good rain right now.

We are not supposed to get any more rain until Thursday. We are having your heat now. 90s thru Friday. It's about 3 weeks early. Usually get it in August. Glad your getting some rain. Roger.

That's good to hear. It seems everyone is either parched or drowning this year.

Good to hear your getting some rain down there. They were saying on the radio this morning we are in the dome you guys in the SW had about a month ago. Things are dry as a bone up here and really need the rain. I planted 4 rows of corn saturday morning. With 95 days to maturity it's a gamble but if we don't get an early killing frost I would have corn mid october?

Great to hear you are getting some badly needed moisture, we have had a few days of dry hot weather here in New England and folks are going like crazy to get hay down, and in.  Some guys can't get into some of their fields, they are just too soggy.

Glad you are getting some rain Brian, but do me a favor and keep it out west for a while.  We have had enough of the wet stuff to last a while. The temps are on the rise and we still have a chance of rain all week.

Brian, we'll pray that the Lord decides to drop the drawstrings over your area this week and fill the water table back up.
