Raining stupid hard. I can probably accept the loss of seed on several acres. That's OK, long term (30day) forecast shows more favorable chances of rain. This time last year we were reducing cattle herds and at the end of May 2022 all cows on my place went to auction.

Well we only got .75in. The storm split
before it got to us and majority of the rain sat over East Texas last couple days.
I feel your pain. The wife & I were run off Friday night by lightning & thunder (sprinkling big drops from really dark clouds). On Saturday morning, the rain gage showed a quarter inch 😖.

For 30min today the sky fell out. Dropped 1.25in of rain, most of that was in the first 15min. I checked radar after lunch and there wasn't any rain within 80 miles, the storm formed right above me and it didn't even show up on radar.

Really good start to the year, in the past 5 weeks we have received more rain than the first 8.5 months of last year.


I was out in the skidsteer when the bottom fell out. I continued working until the ground got soft enough that the belly was hitting and decided to call it quits.

Moved the salt/mineral hut back to my place today. My son and I gave the magnificent 7 herd a splash of dewormer and perithium as well.

My oldest boy brought his girlfriend(city girl) last year to the farm. And her first visit, she was out there cutting seedling/1st year mesquites with him! Told the Laundry Fairy, aka wife, that my boy better keep her.
I don't recommend it!
I married a New York City girl.
THAT was a very poor choice....many years ago.

The Laundry Fairy wants a UTV for our upcoming 25th wedding anniversary of my life sentence. So, I picked up a new mule 4010 yesterday, 100% Japan made with the Kawasaki motor. I just need to make sure I delete the daily bank account updates for about 2 or 3 days and I should be able to surprise her in the next couple weeks. Gonna store it over at my neighbors barn till next month.

Well the L305DT didn't want to even power up/crank, nothing, battery is good. Think I'm gonna order a new ignition switch.
