I was trying to remember what green grass looks like here, after seeing everyone with lush green grass and still getting rain. I went back thru a few pictures.
This year's rainfall total, yes total for the year, was less than 7 inches, I just saw a post where someone got that more than that so far this month, and more than that in June.
Didn't even have enough rain to sprout the grass until January this year, and then it snowed in February and it froze. Didn't have any snow here but that is close, real close.
I use a lot of this stuff.
Dollar does not ride up there, she rides shotgun up front, she was up there thinking she might find a mouse. I import them from the feed store in the hay and for some reason I don't have to pay extra for them.
In 2010 I think we got 18 inches of rain for the year, in December the creek filled up and overflowed into the pasture. Good for the grass not so good for the ground squirrels, the dogs and I found at least 15 that had drowned.
and more water in the east pasture.
One thing about living here, if it is raining and you need to do chores, wait and hour or so
and it will stop raining.
Hoping I don't have to wait until January to see green grass again.
