    Grabbed another inch of rain out west today. More in forecast for Saturday. Anxious to see if the cereal rye and brassicas respond. Hope it is more widespread for you guys next time. Average rain in Hays, KS is 24" a year so roles for sure reversed this year.

    Looks like we have a little more than 24 hours of this deluge chance, so hopefully we can add to our grand total of a tenth. No rain overnight and the skies are clearing.

    Kurt, you might be on to something, I see on radar that western Kansas is getting dumped on again! You’ll have oak ridges in no time and we’ll have short grass prairie. :rolleyes::D

    Last night and this morning we got 2.25“ here at home and a quarter inch at the lease. Guess it’s time to get some seed in the ground !

    We didn't get as much as originally planned and the chances for today and tomorrow fizzled out. However, it sounds like we may have received up to 3" during the week. I'm ecstatic if thats the case.

    Doesn’t look like too much fell, but I’ll take anything we can get.

    All told, I think we ended up with about the same Okie. Back to watching the forecast and praying for rain; well, I guess we never stopped praying for rain.

    3/4" is a pretty good soaker in the middle of a drought...

    Heard from my buddy who lives close to the Massey, we got a little less than I thought unfortunately, about 3/10s.

    Just heard from my buddy who lives close to the Massey, he said it has been raining nice for a little over an hour, and he also said it then cut loose and started pouring about 15 minutes ago. It’s raining nice here at the house too. Hallelujah!!
