We recieved 4.5 inches of rain in less than three hours this afternoon. Was in need of some rain but got a little more needed.

I know what you mean. I'm not one to complain (huge lie) but enough is enough. :lol: :lol: Grump

This spring has been awful in CT. It's done nothing but rain for 4 or 5 days then a nice day & then back into the rain. I borrowed a mid size track excavator today to pull my cub out. It was axle deep, stuck in the mud.
I hope to get seed (and a lot of plants) in the ground this week.

I didn't think I would say this, especially this year, BUT SEND SOME OF THAT RAIN TO THE SOUTH. It's getting a bit dry around here. I had to turn the sprinklers on the potatoes the other night to keep the plants growing, and with them blossing right now, I need some more rain.

Be careful of what you ask for. Right now, 7:00AM I'm looking at a red river where the garden used to be.

Just north of Houston we're at 29 days and counting with no rain. They say next week things are looking better for it, but those 7-day forecasts never last. When we do get it it'll probably be tied in with some tropical storm or hurricane. :shock:

Yep what Dave said. It is dry as a powder house here in Sabine County. My garden is just about burned up. Have been watering out of the well, but that is not as good as a good rain.

This is awful!!!
We have now had rain 19 out of 23 days. Keep an eye on CT, I bet that within two weeks it will be in the 90's and then we'll have a major water shortage.
