We had a fairly good soaker just hours before you got yours Steve. Apparently we left a little moisture up there as it crossed the ol Mississippi for Illinois.[/quote]
We finally got a nice steady rain here too!! We have been a lot luckier here though than what I here on the news than you guys. about the time we start to get concerned we would get a little just enough to keep things going.
Still tricklin' along. As I'm only about a mile where the two streams come together to start the creek. Tricklin' is about all I get this time of year.
Well, more like late August pool right now. Most of the spring fed feeder branches including the one on my property dried up a few weeks ago.
I built a 6"x6" screened intake cage to keep trash out of the pump, and I may have to resize it to 3"x3" if we don't get some good rain soon to keep the end of the line in the water.
Wait a minute, I've got a backhoe now. :? Ok, I may need to find an easy way to get the backhoe to where I need it, to dig a deeper hole for my intake.
On the other hand, north of here where the streams start got some good rain over the past few days, so maybe that will keep the creek tricklin' good.
The state just declared the tri county (Henderson, Union And Webster) Area a disaster area because of the drought.
The weather guessers continue to forcast rain though.
Maybee if they would forcast no rain?
Our predicted week-long wet spell has yielded about a half inch of rain in my immediate area. Move to the south, southeast, southwest, and east from 5 to 25 miles it all changes. Lots of areas have had 3 to 6 inches. Maybe too much for some of those places, but much of it has fallen on concrete and asphalt, and I am sure the city water sellers are happy to have had their reservoirs filled to overflowing. It is not to wet to cultivate my veggie plots or work land. Tobacco close by has not had enough water to come out of its stressed condition..
Nothing since the 4/10 we got saturday but with the new well everything is getting a good drink. No call for rain in the 7 day forcast but some 20%er's and we're headed back to the upper 90's again ???
We got a bit yesterday afternoon, and what Caseman is getting gave us enough drizzle to wet the pavement a few minutes ago, as it skirted off just to the east.
After 36 dry hot sunny days, just a bit of moisture, and cloud cover is a welcome relief. It's 10:30 a.m. and 70 not 85 degrees.
Effective at 5PM Saturday Illinois will be under a stay at home order. Don't know all the and if's and what far, But we'll still be able to go to the grocery store, and pharmacy, hospital and doctor visits. Like said this is not the official list. We have been doing this for the last couple of...
Since the stay at home order is in effect, There is more and more ads on tv selling stuff for $19.99, that and more charities asking for money. With me doing dialysis 4 days a week, there's not a lot of other things to do. My supply of CD's is geting gone through pretty quick.and I don't have cable
