Ok, dance a little harder! LOL!
Last night we had some TERRIFIC storms come through, about an inch in most areas... EXCEPT FOR US!!! Our mountain range acted like a wedge and split the storms east and west. We got a tiny sprinkle, didn't even soak the patios.
I can't tell you how mad I was last night sitting on the porch, lights flickering from the lines being bounced from the storms to the east of us. To add even further insult I had to listen to the thunder and watch the lightening all around me! Here the valleys amplify it and it sounds like bombs dropping.
Sigh. Looks like no more chances for another week and temps in the 100's.
We dug the hole for the 550 gallon water tank yesterday and were worried that the ground would be super hard, it was like digging into flour. I've never seen it dry that deep, usually you get a foot down and see SOME moisture, nadda.
Join us birdbrains MHF and get your chickens!! IF nothing else you'll have plenty of eggs! Going to try a winter garden this year, maybe even try more squash and zucs. We were going to sow some major feed plots on the bottom 60 but I fear it'll be a lost cause. Now I know why so many fawns were abandoned this year, I know several people who are raising them. Little Deer is doing well, but if we get hungry.... JUST KIDDING!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
