We only rec'd about 0.25 inch, here at the house.
Over where we were cutting milo last night, though, we rec'd 1.25 inches!!!
Another section that has milo rec'd 1.30 inches. What a great deal for the fresh-sown wheat! (I wish all of o u r everyone's wheat could have got that much rain!)
The rain fell gently (here), and did not damage anything. We are fortunate, though....I heard that it hailed quite a bit near Hereford
(, TX). Our county agent said that he was through there last night, just after the hail had fallen ; and he said that the hail was
2 feet deep
(on each side of the road, from TXDOT maintainers scraping it off the road). I do not know how deep the hail was on the level ; but it would take quite a bit
to make "wind rows" of hail, on each side of he highway [that deep]!
The highway had to be closed for a time, while TXDOT cleared it.
The Nat'nl Weather Service in Amarillo, TX (located at/near the Airport) reported about 0.7 inch of rainfall last night...For you locals,
I heard that the Lake Tanglewood area also rec'd some hail. Also, the weather got kinda' rough this morning (10-11-'07) down around Memphis, TX....also north of Pampa.
How much rain did you get last night? Any hail? Hopefully your wheat got a drink.
: What about u? You get any rain? Aren't you around Tulia, or is it Silverton? Is your wheat up behind that fancy air rig?
If you are not happy with it, you can drop it off over here...
Anybody else :
? (where ever you live)
It will be a few days, now, before we get back to cutting...in that location, anyway.
The weather men said NOTHING of last night's storms!!!!
The storms were a TOTAL
shock to them. I heard one of 'em say that these storms "snuck" in off of the mountains, and headed "our way"....yeah, whatever...
Some of our ~best rain~, around here, has come when no one is 'calling for them' in the forecast. They are, however, calling for a big round of wind
later this week...and into the weekend...and they hardly EVER
miss the forecast when it comes to the wind!
