It looks like the system in the Gulf is just going to be a rainmaker for primarily South Texas. I don't know what kind of harvesting is going on but I hope y'all get some beneficial rain.

It looks to be a big rain maker for the next few days. Hope it goes up the river and rains itself out over the watershed. Our lakes are low.
Cotton and corn was the last to be harvested. Only the round bales are still on the turn rows and need to be picked up and taken to the gin.
Further up toward Corpus Christ cutting and picking I think is still ongoing. They finish later than we do.
I got little over 6" since it started Sunday. First measurable rain since the rains in early June. Some places to the south and west got much more.
Citrus, sugar cane and ranchland are the biggest beneficiaries.
I'm watching Isaac in the Caribbean. No one is saying much about it. I read one discussion that says it will fall apart. hope they are right.

It?s been a strange year for crops in this area of north central Texas. Locals baled the corn crop with tiny little ears on it, wasn?t worth picking. Milo made about half yield from average and now has greened back out and 2 foot tall but too wet to plow it now while it sucks nitrogen out of the soil. I saw cotton west of Cleburne last weekend that is just now blooming.

it has been a weird year. wet then very dry and now wet but a lot depends on where you are. I wonder if there is still time for a cutting of hay here in central TX. I hope the Temple show doesn't get rained out
