I live in Texas and we have been getting alot of rain for awhile. Last Thursday my farm took a hit with a flood I had never seen anything like it before. I raise a few exotic animals on it and I spend the last few days fixing fences and finding animals. A large pond of my neighbors lost its damn and took out one fence. On the front another large pond took out a side fence. I had moss coated on the 8″ fence. It washed out a large part of a county road and washed out a culvert on my property. This was the freakiest flood I have every seen. I would never believed it would have done what it did. I had a young fallow buck run into the fence during the nights and the wire cut its throat. It was on the outside trying to get back in it appears. It must have been spooked by something. It looks like this was my only animal I have lost.
I need a little drying out

Things are about to start burning again in the woods.
No rain here of any amount for almost 6 weeks.

Here in San Antonio we have had about 12 in for june and 3 in for July for so far that is 35 in for the year 9 over the year adv total with 5 months to go. Last year we could not buy a rain.
I grew up in North-West Texas, my family owns a Ranch is the southern panhandle. They have gotten about 26 inches this year (looks great). The year adv there is about 19 in. Last year I think they got 9 in and 4in came at the forth of July.
Got to love that Texas weather!!!!

I heard that Argentina had snow today for the first time since 1918.
retrieverman-I have hunted in Nacogdoches for the last 27 years but I am afraid how thick it will be this year. I live south of Dallas and hay has been hard to find and high the last couple of years. This year the haygrazer that is grown by some of the farmers for hay is all yellow and has not grown half as much as it should have.

Everyday rain here (Germany) too for at least the last 4-5 weeks… No good condition for harvesting my wheat… 😡

Last year none of the corn around made it. This year the majority of the wheat crop was lost. It hasn’t dried up enough to harvest it. It should have been harvested in May.
