I have been whining for the past 5 or is it 6 years about this long running dry spell.
Well it’s not so dry now. In the past 14 days my tiny garden has received more than 10 inches(250mm) of rain. With more possibly much more forecast to arrive in the next 5 – 7 days.
This evening I got another 3 inches(75mm) of rain. The soil is so wet now that every drop of rain that falls is running off. Headed for the Red River and finely into the Gulf of Mexico.
I’ll bet that I get to re-plant squash, cucumbers and okra ‘Again’.
Looking out my tiny window I could see the 20 acres around me was covered with 2 or maybe 2 1/2 inches of water moving west to the usually dry wash. Mmmm that’s over 54 thousand of gallons per-acre of water draining into the Red River.
The following 3 pictures were taken from about the same place looking north from my tiny back door.
