Haven't checked on my hole since it started raining but I got to think it is helping. I had zero water as of last week down in the woods and probably needed to raise the upper pond 6+ inches before it will start to flow down in there. Supposed to get 1.6" today. Had .3" yesterday. Blind on public had some water, enough to hunt, but just barely. Was forecasted to get 1.7" today. That will probably be enough to raise that spot a fair amount. Anybody else really benefitting from the rain this week?
