I swear if I hear someone else saying we need rain , I'm going to stab them in the eye with something..... I know we needed rain but this is getting old already.

We have plenty. We were wishing for it in May, I think we got our May and June rains in one month.

I had one rain which was about 1/4 inch since the 20th of April and that was somewhere around the middle of May. Garden is dead for lack of rain. It has rained all around me just not on me.

I wish there was some way we could share the rain. My garden is so wet that it is drowning everything, but at least we aren't flooding like some places are. I heard on the radio this mourning that only 49% of the soy beans are planted in our area. Sure am glad I'm not farming.

From the amount of rain I've received I'm beginning to wonder.

Last nights 1/2 of rain put me at just under 9" for the last two weeks. I love how my lawn and the woods behind my house is really green but I'm ready for a little break too.

You guys got a lot more than we did North of you. A lot of that heavy stuff just slide by us to the South.  In just we had right at 6" but places 15 miles South had one rain of 6".  Saw a guy planting Soy Beans last Thursday.  Hoping for a late frost.  Lot of corn is not going to make it knee high by Saturday for sure.

Some of the farmers hit it just right around here. Their fields are middle of the thigh or higher others are only halfway up the calf... You never know
