I have done my part, I have left seed in the combine, hay on the ground, washed my truck, left exhaust stacks open and yet no rain. I thought yesterday afternoon was going to be it, it was dark as night at 4pm it sprinkled for a minute and then went straight south. An inch of rain right now would do wonders for everything including attitudes.

All you can do is wait it out. You know it'll happen sometime. Maybe not this year,but sometime.

We didn't get any rain round here 'till I lost my parking spot in the barn & the chopper has to sit out. Our precip deficit has been cut in half. I think you need to set something out that you really, really, REALLY don't want to get soaked & it will. Oooh, I had a thought, It'd be a great time to tear off, redeck & shingle your house if it needs it. Tearoff always angered the Rain God when I roofed.

I suspect the Heavens will open up in about a month here, and we will be in a long wet pattern and get to mud the crop out......

Got just a little over 1/2 an inch last evening but walking around in the field today you could not tell that it had rained a drop. A lot better then not getting any but sure could use a lot more

Now we can always count on Animal for some irony. I was just thinking the same exact thing. I am gonna take a old friend of mine to the old tractor show in Oakley, Michigan and go ahead and leave hay on the ground with a 30% chance of rain today. I'm gonna go and have some fun for once.

Hang a dead snake on your fence. Then get your boots and oilskins ready.
