Got up this morning and found another couple of inches on snow on the ground. I'm rather glad that I didn't put the rest of my garden in this year.
Everything is growing real slow. We had 1 really warm day and that was it.

So who's hogging the warm weather? :D ;-)

Skeeters don't seem to be a problem in 90 degree 22 mph wind. Haven't seen any grasshoppers either. Cows do have a few flies, but they must be afoot till they hitch a ride. Is it getting green yet Cal? We are beginning the downhill side of greenup. Starting the burn-up.

Be glad when winter gets here. :p

Wish I could sent it your way HD.

Well Just_a_girl this sure explains why we saw the fattest rattlesnakes last fall. Never saw them so fat that their heads looked small.

It's supposed to be 86 degrees F here today. Last week, we were in the 90's several days... I'd be glad to send you a little heat.

Hey ILH! Come on down to SE Tx if you want some heat! 89 feels like 95, the pollen is ready to play with your allergies, and yea, the snakes have come out of hiding. The days are now at the point of running the A/C on high whenever I get in the truck.

Wish I could send some moisture to those that need it, another gully washer Monday night and more predicted for tonight. Trying to get a driveway to my house results in just moving the slop around. Just can't get it to dry out. Temps still cool. Morels are not popping as they usually do in May... :( Ahh, Michigan.

Well [email protected] ,,,they have called off the snow now and are predicting 2 mm of rain..WTF ??? Can we not get a break this year, it rained all day today just not here, if you went 5 miles N,S.E. or W of here they all got tons of rain.. I am still feeding hay right now and last year my cow's were out on pasture at this time, I bought more hay to tie me over and am now almost out again..I do not know what I am going to do.. :help:

I also had mowed my lawn twice this time last year ..... :roll:


The only good thing is that the purple martins are here now, 5 pairs moved into the house this week .I love hearing their chatter at 5 am.. :)

I feel your pain HD. Fingers crossed, we have rain forecast for tomorrow and Sunday. Been their all week and hasn't moved. Really need one as things are begining to burn up in the wind and heat.

As a note: May 15, 2008, a year ago today, was the last time it rained over three inches in a 24 hour period. Since then we have gotten 14.6 inches of rain, a shortfall of about 23.4 inches using 38 inches as average rainfall. So far this year we have gotten 7.8 inches, 1.2 less than we recieved in the same period last year.

I mowed the yard about 2 1/2 weeks ago for the first time since last August.
