Not likely to move much this week. They tend to move a bit slow and often dont put allot of stock into events like what happened tonight even though a fairly large area got a fairly large amount of rain. But much of the rain was likely to run off due to the high rate it came down at therefore not helping the majority of the statistics they look at it for judging what is and is not a drought and its overall impacts. All that said it's raining in Bismarck again right now and it rained like this last night and before that all we had received as far as precipitation goes since January 1st was just slightly over 2 inches vs over 10 inches at this point last year....so needless to say things are definitely moving in the right direction. And to be clear since this is a waterfowl site my main concern here is not for the ducks and the geese... they're fine last year's moisture was dramatically more than enough to guarantee current conditions for them! My concern has and is for the farmers and the pheasants and things are definitely shaping up better for both of those. So here is hoping round three plays out well tomorrow so we can be sure to avoid the ability of a drought to wipe out this year's pheasant crop... Although I'm hoping I can get out and try to figure out if the juneberries are good or not unfortunately I now have to deal with mud which will stop me from getting to where I need to go but I'm okay with that in the end! Let it rain let it rain let it rain!
