Three full days of it.
It's starting to look like we're going to get our 12" annual rainfall in one dose!
We never have floods in these parts: the ground just soaks it up almost as fast as it comes down. And there's a new color on the plains now. Green. The country is greening up at a remarkable rate. The mulies, who are grazers and not browsers like whitetails, seem pretty happy with the new growth and since I have a lot of it on my place I am still on their Good Guy list.
It would be nice if we could get a few more (perhaps shorter) spates of good, soaking rain in the weeks to come. But if the pattern of the past holds, we will have a long, long dry spell to look forward to.
