Finally, RAIN

For almost 3 weeks, we've had no rain. Around us there have been showers and downpours, but right here, nothing. Drought. Dangerous drought. High temps, with days in the 70's and even hitting 80, when we're supposed to be in the low 60's. Today, the skies are finally letting loose and we're getting rain. There is no hay growing in the fields here without rain, and there will be no hay crop the end of the month unless this happens ever week at least. Today we can be thankful for the rain, and I hope it keeps falling all day long. The woods are too dry and the birds and animals need this too. Finally, rain!

I'm glad you are getting what you need. We are thankful for the extra hay in our barn from last year, because it has been too wet here for anyone to put up first cutting yet. When they finally do, it will be too mature to have much food value. We have enough hay to wait on 2nd and 3rd cutting from the two producers we know who irrigate, and we are very thankful!

I hope you've continued to get some rain. Here, it's raining so often that they're having trouble getting the hay harvested. Weather is always such a challenge!
