DANG WEATHER FORECAST

UGH.  Didn't go to the farm today, and so I didn't get to water the fruit trees.  The weathermen were certain that today would bring heavy rains.  The radar even showed the Gulf of Mexico full of heavy storms just offshore.  The skies were dark and overcast all day long.  I even heard thunder once.

But alas...no rain.

It's still in the forecast for tomorrow, so we'll see, but if it doesn't, I might be making a trip out after work in the middle of the week to water.

The rest of the weekend was good, and I'll have the usual update posts during the week.  Hope you all had fun doing whatever makes you happy.  I will be visiting your blogs to catch up.  And please send us rain!  We need it!  It's been a month without measurable rain and even with that, we are still way behind for the year and technically in a drought status.  A good soaking would be welcome.

We didn't get any rain either & they kept saying that both Sat. & Sun. we would god enormous amounts of rain. They just can't get it right. Have a great week.

We got rain and thunder for about an hour this evening, along with 30 MPH winds and 50 MPH gusts. Knocked my new corn down, but I think it will go back up by itself. Front yard is a mess of pine cones and branches :-(

1st Man,

I'll do a rain dance for you, lol.......

It's dry here but we've had rain just a couple of weeks ago.

Praying you get a nice continuous gentle rain for several days.

Glad to know our weatherman isn't the only one who can't get the forecasts right.

Sending you rain, sending you rain!! (Imagine a person jumping up and down like an idiot screaming this and that's what I look like! Lol.)

Same thing here. "Oh it's going to rain ALL weekend, it will be wet and rainy, blah blah," ha.

We DID get some today, not as much as I hoped but a bit. And possibly more tomorrow. We'll see.

Hope you got that all cleaned up. Send Mr Granny out, you've got the garden to mess with ha. Hope the corn is ok. :-(

Ha, I've always said it's the only job you can have and be wrong at most of the time and not get fired, LOL!

1st Man said...

HEY! IT might have worked, we had some rain today. Not as much as we hoped, so jump up and down more!!

1st Man said...

Thank you! We'll take whatever we can get, ha. It did rain a bit today. And possibly more tomorrow. Still not enough. I guess your dance worked, just dance harder tomorrow!! LOL!!!!!!

Ha! I got it cleaned up, while Mr. Granny took his nap. He did put the (overflowing) garbage can back in the garage after I'd finished. Corn looks fine.
