Rain for the Weary

A Welcomed Sight

Last night we received almost 3/4 of an inch of rain at our farm in SWKS. If you haven't read some of the posts about the drought in Kansas, 3/4 of an inch doesn't sound like much.

You know what's funny about the rain we received? It completely doubled what precipitation we have received since LAST FALL! The only problem is that it was 105 degrees out today, drying up the puddles pretty quickly.

With record breaking heat this summer and the least amount of rain we have received in decades, this summer is set to be pretty rough on area farmers. They are working hard to keep up with the irrigation water and making sure that crops at least have a chance.
