I understand Dale, I REALLY do! It's making it impossible to get our farm work done, but as you said, we're blessed compared to so many.

Yes, my problems are small compared to folks just north of me. However, it looks like this will be "one of those years" where the rain makes for a tough gardening year. Here's a link that shows recent rainfall amounts for our locale: National Weather Service : Observed Weather for past 3 Days : Rogers Automatic Weather Observing / Reporting Sys

Dan, I remember last year about this time when you had lots of run-off that caused you to replant green beans, if I'm not mistaken. I bet my hillside garden will be a mess by the time this rain passes.

Yes NRA, lost most of my green beans & tons of soil! I dug more diversion ditches, so haven't had the wash problems this year. Just had more heavy rains come through. I wish my garden was my only worry with the weather, but my livelihood is getting hit hard with all this rain, and no end in sight.

Keep treading guys!

First nice day in 3 and I had to work 10hrs indoors. Oh well, got the beans in before supper and sprayed the roundup on the garde to kill the weeds before anything came up. Peas are up already, had to stay away from them.

Corns and potatoes tomorrow nite if there is time and dry enough soil.

Had some pretty high winds, 55-60. Maybe higher. Some soft hail. It's all past now. Lost a few limbs off the broccoli. Will check it in the morning. Plenty of rain. Hope jpcubs is okay.

We had a line of storms blow through here last nite around 6. I drive truck for a lumber yard/millwork business and was on my way back from eastern Pa when the line started approaching. Till I made it back to the shop and got in my car it was on us BAD. I drove home in some really heavy rain and didnt really think all that much of it. Was having too much fun driving thru all the water laying on the roads I guess. Got home and the sun came out not more than 20 minutes from when the rain started. Heard a fire truck go by and my buddy calls and says the local highway is closed with powerlines and trees all over it. They were suspecting last nite it was a tornado but I havent heard the official word as of this evening. Left a narrow damage path running west to east a few miles long. That damage path was about 3 miles to the north of my house. We don't get that kinda severe weather too often around here. Also showed a picture on the local news this morning of a funnel they spotted in a town about 20 miles to the southwest of us from about the same time. The weather is just nuts here this year. I dont think we will be in our fields to plant soybeans or corn for at least a week after all this stops.

Under edit I just checked the local paper website and it appears we did indeed have two twisters here yesterday.

Heres the papers homepage. http://dailyitem.com/

In case that don't work here's the direct links.

Here's the first story on the one closest to me. http://dailyitem.com...nel-hit-110-mph

And the one that was to our southwest. http://dailyitem.com...-Juniata-County

We also got some bad winds last nite, heard rumors of a non touchdown near here, but no official word, no news reports. Only thing we lost was some leaves off the trees. Hope it gets milder for everyone soon.
