I see a dark cloud coming from the west.  We may get a shot of rain too.

2.17" at the ranch the past 24 hrs. 2.47" by Owatonna. Lotsa reports in that range locally. It rained hard late yesterday afternoon, was about an inch last nite at choretime. Must've kept at it overnite occasionally. A 40% chance of rain today and it feels like it. Sure wouldn't take much to generate a shower as juiced as the atmosphere is here right now. Have never seen the vegetation any lusher or greener than it is.

Got the rain gauge reading from Bugtussle.  3.3" there. No spraying today, kids. :coffee:

Looks like some scattered showers on the radar again, heading towards roony's of all places. Should help the mosquitoes going. They can spread West Nile virus to his wren population to keep them in check. Speaking of that, there's one mosquito in here. Can't see it but can sure hear the  :mad1:

Every so many years I see the SE part of the state gets wailed on with rain and warshes out the roads, bridges etc.  Maybe that is further SE of you.  Hope you don't get much more rain.

I grew up in SE MN & ya, it's a different animal. There's enough relief in that area that once the water gets rolling it can wipe out just about anything it feels like. There can be some of that in SC MN but it tends to be flatter so the water ponds instead. That's why they call it prairie pothole country. Used to be some of the best duck and mosquito habitat in North America.

Back on SE MN, I remember driving over there from Bugtussle to visit Mom one time. Forgot to roll the driver's side window up on my Chevy Luv. This was back before the days of cell phones and instant access to radar. It poured for ~ 2 hours. When it was over there was > 4" in the gauge. Even tho I put a garbage bag on the cloth seat for the ride home, I still got a wet @$$ out of the deal, at least the part of it my wife wasn't chewing. The pickup really reeked after that. About a week later, I was crossing Boot Creek west of Bugtussle with a farmer in the Luv to get to his field on the other side. He assured me the water shouldn't be deep enough to be a concern. Wrong. It splashed up inside the engine compartment, got it wet and it stopped midstream. When we opened the doors to get out, the water ran through the pickup! Still remember seeing one of my sneakers floating down the creek. I just thought the Luv stunk inside before!

3.3" wowser. That is a lot of water any time but especially o n fully saturated soil. Been seeing a lot of bad soil erosion this spring. I'm liking the cover crop on our family farm this year to prevent that.
Oh yeah, raining again here.

If I hear one more effing weather terrorist say we have beneficial rain on the way I may be tempted to slap some sense into him.

'zactly roony. When farmers started out back in April, so many of them were convinced subsoils were really dry. Still a lot of them in disbelief that the ground became saturated so quickly & their drainage systems can't keep up.

Rooney you sure you don't have a neighbor sneaking over and pranking you? You know, dumping an extra 1 1/2"  in your rain gauge every time it sprinkles down there?   :pouty:

Well that was par for the course. After chores, I found an ounce of Milestone in a jug I didn't know I had. Decided I was going to spray some thistle & nettle patches with the hand sprayer in the main lot. After that my plan was to fire up the lawnmower. Just about the time I got most of the tank sprayed out, it started to sprinkle. Then it rained. Probably washed most of it off. Rain ended my mowing plans too. :sad:

.35" I'm the gauge this morning. I guess I'll call that a win considering the heavy rain that missed us.

Was s'posed to get some rain about 5 & again around 7 last night but it looked like it split & went around us. Some nasties out there around 2:30-3 this morning too but that stayed just south of us.

No doubt roony, a moral victory at .32" at the ranch & .35" in Bugtussle. Might be a shower from Saturday in the latter total as the gauge wasn't read yesterday. Looks like I lucked out on the spraying I did before it rained the 1st time. Looking at the chemical label afterwards, the rainfast on Milestone is 2 hrs. and the dicamba formulation I was using is 4 hrs. I wasn't hopeful. Checked the gauge about 9:30 last nite and noted there was only .12" after the shower moved thru. When I looked at the Canada thistle and nettle patches this morning, they were all drooping. Yeesssss!!!!
