Can you guys PLEASE send me some rain?

So in NW Arkansas we are at an 8+ inch deficit. My fields are dust, yard is nothing but weeds, pond has been dry for over a month, and my WELL IS RUNNING DRY! I really need to hog the pasture but I can't in fear of burning up what little grass I have left! Did it last year and just about ruined them.

Super sike yesterday, they had warnings for bad thunderstorms and it swept by us by a few dozen miles! Then the storms lazily dumped inches just east of us.

This is just insane. How are you guys doing?

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!

It's been rainy and gloomy all day here in Maryland :(. I don't have an indoor or rain gear so riding is out.

Just south of me tons of rain, no rain for me in 5 or 6 weeks.
Lots of thunder yesterday, as soon as it got to us half went north and half went south. All I am doing is watering something.

Yep, was watering tons but now can't! I'm going to lose my lovely squash, they are turning into gourds. Hopefully some rain will come! We only did a 500 sq. Ft. Garden this year, but I'll be lucky to get a freezer full. And what I do get is going to be tough!

We are getting ready to put in an underground water storage tank and have the water hauler start coming out. Only 3k! And I'm not EVEN going to let DH tell me the fill bill.
My hub thinks its going to be GREAT, but just the three horses will empty it in no time. Shhh don't let him know!

I just looked at the forecast again, it's changed from some hope to nil, come on guys! Lol!

Ugh ..

OT, but where do you live in Arkansas? I'm planning a trip up to NW Ark in July to pick up a colt and possibly a started gelding from a QH ranch up there.

I hear you, we've gotten more rain already this year than we got all last year, but things are still brown and crispy and the dirt is blowing everywhere. We're like you, it seems that every time there is storms anywhere in the area, they manage to go all the way around us without dropping so much as a sprinkle .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I live between Ozark, AR, and Fayetteville, AR on Hwy 23.
Good luck on the colt! Where is the ranch?
