Over a half inch here and still raining, would be nice if it was warmer than 9 degrees but I will take it!

We are getting just enough just in time. Crop is behind and slow from being cold and dry, but it could still turn out okay if good weather going forward(including no early frost in fall).

I did drive to Portage La Prairie the other day and took different routes there and back, I would say the crops generally look poorer than normal for Manitoba.

Pretty much. I prefer good weather over good fishing. Not a huge fresh water fish eater. Normally we go to Nipiwin area. I miss seeing pine trees and the smells that come with them

Around 6/10" since yesterday morning and still some light drizzle. Not a massive amount but does exactly what is needed right now so will be interesting to see how much seed in the ground comes up.

We also got 6/10" this afternoon and that's the first measurable amount in the last 45 days. Most of the crop was already up and other than the earliest stuff that was running out of moisture and a few hard dry spots in the later fields that still have some seeds waiting, we were in alright shape. So this is pretty good timing, especially for the 120 acres we sowed to hay about two weeks ago. Supposed to get another 30 to 45 mm in the next week but we've all heard that before.

I feel a little guilty reporting that SW Manitoba got a real good rain today, personally got 1.5-1.6" across the farm nice and slow. Will keep us going through June I would think.

I also feel a little guilty about ribbing the guy that started the thread. I didn't think Watrous was ever low on rain like some areas in the south of SK, but he might just be legitimately dry after all. Hopefully he and all the others on here get their much needed rain, or better yet "got" it already.

Few acres got a half inch. Most acres nothing. Durum heading out, canola starting to bolt and flower where it germinated. Lentils will be short and flowering soon.

But happy for the guys that got rain! Might change strategy for grain in bins is all.
