Very dry her. I have not saturated the ground around my ground rods but I suspect it needs it. Kentucky experienced the hottest September on record. In fact, it blew away the previous record from like 1906.

Currently 57 degrees and we ended up with 2.75", roads are washed out AGAIN. I'm soooo over this rain! Only consolation is there's still a ton of grass. And weeds.

… you're feeding this AM and the plank board your standing on in a split second pulls all the nails and sends you heels over head gymantists crazy flip over top board just as you dump bucket to yearling heifers. luckily, somehow grabbedtop plank with right hand to keep damage to myself to a minimum, still swung legs down on the metal feeder pretty hard. Must have looked pretty bad because 8 yr old daughters jaw was on the ground for the next 15 minutes. probably really going to feel it tomorrow AM getting out of bed.

I had just put a few boards back up on Tuesday, first thought was the dry air of course and drought. Found lots of loose boards and nails. Started putting screws in and tapping nails back this PM. Dust everywhere

you know it's dry

when there's cracks in the ground,
and even the chiggers,
are not to be found.

green is no where to see,
cactus or water leaks,
only place it will be.

forget planting seeds,
the ground is hard,
and wilting are the weeds,

and for this ole dusty plain,
maybe once more we will have,
another good soaking rain.
i know as much about this as anything else i don't know much about
happiness is healthy cattle

I'm in the county next door in VA. It is the same way here. I'm in central VA working and it's even worse here. They have had 15" less rain for the year than I have.
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT
