We got the tail of it. Rained about 1.5 hours last night. Gave my wheat and clover a drink for sure!
Are your buildings still there?
Yes, still good here. Most all of the severe storms and rain were west and north of us...we just caught a thin line of the storm. Some areas of Oklahoma had huge storm swaths!
Looks like 1-2 more inches of rain expected tonight south of Hays. Forecast includes hail and strong storms. Hope they miss that hail as a lot of crops still out in the field.
I planted my home place last week and planting the lease tomorrow. Not much moisture in the ground but got some forecast for Thursday, holding my breath.
Like clockwork every year after july 4 here
Rain "off",Heat "on"
Holding my breath as well
Well I think the drought here broke...got 3/4” a couple weeks back, 1.1” last weekend and now we had a good rain starting at about 8:30 am till about 1:45 pm...some of it very heavy! Even got runoff from it! Solid rain chances the next 2 days as well...
Bad news again today. Something happened to my tractor, sounded like it threw a rod. Anyway, parked it, rented one, and got six plots planted with awnless wheat and forage oats. Need a rain and a loan !
Sorry to hear that DC.
We’ve picked up almost 2” in the last 36 hours. I’m looking forward to seeing the plots this weekend

Hopefully tractors aren’t as overpriced as trucks right now!
With my buddy’s help I got it to my mechanic today. Probably won’t hear anything from him for a couple weeks. He’s very good and stays behind all the time. He ain’t cheap either, but when he fixes it, it’s fixed !
I did learn something though, as it was a JD that I rented. You couldn’t run fast enough to sell me a JD !
How did it compare to the kubota M6040?
What size JD?
Bill, I don’t know what number was on it but it was a 65 hp machine. I’m sure if I got used to it I’d learn to live with it except for a couple things.
The good points: You could hang meat in the cab, the A/C was that good.
I liked the throttle and it’s placement. The lever to work the lift was placed better than mine.
The bad points: No bucket leveling gauge.
The implement wouldn’t stay where you stopped the lever. When I lowered my seeder to pour in fert or seed the damn thing would just keep on going down. My PTO shaft separated three times and screwed up the plastic safety sleeves.
The brakes were too far to the right for me and that made the accelerator even farther to the right. Uncomfortable !
I’m probably well on my way to being a grumpy old fart, but I like things like I like ‘em !
