Be glad with that story comes to town.

I'm willing to try anything but I'd rather you park it in my pastures. Walmart is 3 miles away, to far, been missed by many rains by less than a half mile already. How about a raindance, would you be up for that? Nothing I've tried has worked. Been meaning to try Jogee's suggestion but can't get the spit to hit the circle. To much wind and it evaporates before it hits the ground. :lol:
Fertilizer spreaders have been up and down the road the past few days, I even got the itch but kept my money in my pockets. Nothing chases a chance of rain away like putting out several thousand dollars worth of fertilizer. Besides, it won't do much good if it doesn't rain for another 4 weeks afterwards. Going to make do with what is left over from last year till conditions prove it is worth the risk.
Radar has most of the state lit up. Lee and Burleson still seem to be untouched by any precipitation. At least it looks like we might still be able to catch at least a shower before it gets blown away. Need something, I've got several heifers that must be waiting for worse weather before they have their calves.

Lammie":254m6v6a said:Yes, I think that Peg, Alice and I can arrange to do a raindance. I will park my newly washed truck in the middle of your property. Windows down. If you want, I can bring another vehicle. Got Dad's minivan. It has leather seats, so the rain will really be attracted to that.
Dang! :shock: That sound great. Makes our 1 inch sound like we were on the dry side again. It is still drizzling some and radar shows some more on the way. Might top out about 1 1/4. Just checked back on figures, this is the second time since May 15 in we got more than 1 inch in 24 hrs. Ike, if you remember, brought us 1 6/10ths. No puddles or runnoff here yet.TexasBred":3q6b26sc said:Sloshed out and checked the gauge this morning early. We already had 4.8 inches of rain and more forcasts. Tank is already full and running over the spillway. Farmers are probably still dancing in the fields.
Lammie":3q6b26sc said:It is still raining this morning. I hope you get more rain, Vette. I wish it wasn't so cold but I will take anything I can get. March can be a freaky cold month here. April can, too. I was driving around yesterday and it was downright dangerous on the roads due to the rain, wind and idiots. I fear the idiots far more than the rain.
