    We were setting up for another summer drought until July hit - it's rained literally every day this month, and our 14 day total is close to the average for all of summer. I've had to run the sump to drain the pool every few days...

    Been totally sucky for July 4th and anything outdoors, but the lawn and gardens look great so I guess there's that....

    Been good here. We probably had a drier spell in May/early June (good for the grouse broods), but have been getting timely rain since.
    There was concern with the lake I hunt/fish this spring as a lack of snowpack left levels really low after fall draw-down. But it's about seasonal now.
    Might be a good year for us duck wise.

    We were just issued with emergency drought conditions along with the rest of the state other than Seattle, Everett and Tacoma...The base of liberal voters....Governor Insleeze wouldn't want to **** them off. April 2021 tied April of 1926 for the second driest on record. April of 1895 was the driest ever.

    Here is the coastal mountain snowpack as of today when I was up there. thumbnail.jpg

    If it'll make you feel better I've got some grass you could mow. Apparently my state is getting water from the west and Canada. Please come and get your water .

    I'm having absolutely perfect weather for tomatoes.
    Huge crop on the way.

    The wild rice near our cabin in North central MN is setting up to be a bumper crop. Never seen so much rice on the river up there. Not even during the Dry periods of the late 70's. Low water levels are good for wild rice around our area. As long as there are no gully gushers in the next few weeks it should be good to go.

    Shh . With the dakotas as dry as they are, we don’t need anyone getting the idea that MN actually has ducks.
