The sun was shining here yesterday and it was about 75°F. It is supposed to get to 73 here today with sunshine after the morning clouds burn off. Time to finish getting the potatoes planted. The peas are coming up--at least I can see bits of green--if the snails don't eat them first. I noticed my iris leaves are getting eaten again this year and I wish I knew what to do to get rid of whatever it is that is eating them.

How exciting to see peas coming up! I love that. The sun is shining here, also. Our temperature is supposed to get up in the 70s. Nice weather.

Last night, we got a wicked thunderstorm!!!! My inside cat was hiding so good, I could never find her! This morning, it's still raining. This afternoon, it's rather gloomy and more rain is expected.
The temperature is in the low 60s.

warmer, with rain coming in tomorrow. Hoping pastures will green up with the rain and warmer temps.
Marly, you find your kitty?

Yes, Teri, she's a hoot. She was in a bookcase with a sliding door. I notice the door was partially opened. Peeked in. There were her big blue eyes. She refused to come out until she could hear no more thunder!!!! Hugs.

Can you smell the sweet smell of rain on sagebrush and parched earth? I can, with my eyes closed, I smell that wonderful smell, and I can feel the moisture and rain on my skin, and the on acres of oats planted in faith that the rain will come. But life isn't lived in a dream, but in reality. Once again the heavy black clouds full of rain have passed us by. Dry land farmers have more faith than anyone, so I will hang on, waiting for another front, another storn, another day.

Kennie Lyn, it's hard to imagine your part of the country is so dry, when I am standing ankle deep in mud here. And complaining about it all the time. And you would gladly be doing that. This has been the wettest winter ever and it's still wet. Mud, mud and more mud. All over the place. It's nasty. I cannot even imagine a dry spot ever again. I always wondered why it rains so much in winter when we need it to rain in summer to water the gardens. But I know God knows what he's doing. It always works out. I do hope you get the rain you need there soon. I know that when you are dry and things don't grow there, it affects the whole country. I would gladly give you some of our rain if I could.

Kind of volatile here at the moment. A couple of days ago it was in the 60's and now its windy, stormy and upper 30's to upper 40's. I was just going to rent a big mower-mulcher to take down the rough dry weeds and tall grass stalks from last autumn, and of course it immediately started raining like crazy. So the weather on the Palouse if sticking it's tongue out at me again. Kennie Lyn, I am pulling for you guys down there and praying for a wet year for everyone caught in drought these past couple of years. But I'll make sure to ask that you be spared any more mud Kris

Thank you all for your good wishes. We have great hope as always. There is a 60% chance of rain tomorrow. It has sprinkled, but only enough to get the sidewalk wet, not enough to even moisten the worked up, planted ground. From here, on the mountain, I can see the storms going around us, frustrating.

Frustrating. I like the way you put that. I understand how hard it is to look at the sky and just pray for rain, sun(to dry the hay), or even snow for some moisture in the spring. Funny how we choose to depend on mother nature to keep our livelihoods afloat. I probably shouldn't but I often compare it to the 9 to 5ers who will never understand or even look at a weather forecast. I have a weather scanner that I listen to every morning. I so hope you get some rain shortly.

Yes, will2farm, I often think of people who only care about the weather if it affects their plans for the weekend. The first thing we do in the morning is see what the weather is, and then listen to the news to see what is coming, and what is happening all around the country. Even tho, we may live separated by distance, the weather all over the country affects us all, in prices we recieve, and the prices we pay for goods we need.
Our mountain finally captured a cloud, and we got some rain last night, enough to get the oats out of the ground, and jump start the grass. Been saying little prayers of thanksgiving all day.

It is cold today. There was ice under the sprinklers. We were chasing around the longhorns this morning, and my ears are still cold. The wind is blowing out of the NW, and it is cold.

Kennie Lyn, if I may call you that. My name is Jody and I'm a farmgirl from good ol' NY.I'm new here and trying to learn. Speaking of the weather always makes me feel blessed to have known a couple of older farmers and to hear their sayings.One once told me if two old farmers were standing at the end of a barn looking out, they would argue whether it's raining or not. Always made me chuckle. The second one was(and I hope I don't have this reversed) is that a wet year will scare you but a dry year will kill you. I guess meaning that in a wet year the crops are there though hard to get but in a dry year...well you know. glad you got a little rain

Yes Jody, you may call me Kennie Lyn. Nice to talk to you. Isn't it wonderful to get to know farm girls from all over? I especially like this weather report. It is very interesting.

Sherone, how are you faring with that terrible winter storm that passed through? I called a cousin in Alliance, NE and he said that they had received FEET of snow and that it was very cold. This was at the same time we were having 65°F sunshiny temps. He said that his lawn hadn't even started to green up yet and I have to mow mine for the second time.

The snow was almost gone yesterday, just a few piles and ice patches. Then last night a thunderstorm started and switched to heavy wet snow over night. We have a couple of inches but the forecast for today is 10-15 inches more! The frost is out of the ground and temps will be in the high 30's some of this week, so it will be WET!

Thanks, Kennie Lyn. I'm so happy to have found a place like maryjanes, it's like aloe to my soul right now. I've had my own dairy farm for 25 yrs and just in the last month had to sell my girls and am in danger of losing my 270 acre farm. I'm not complaining at all, it's just not what I had in mind. I was wondering are you growing the oats for grain for your longhorns and then bale the straw?

Oh, Jody I am so sorry. We had to get rid of our beef cows several years ago, and I still miss them. We have replaced them with Longhorns, cuz we can't afford beef cows, and they aren't nearly as nice as the cows we had. I used to have a few milk cows, 6 at the most. We milked them and fed the milk to bucket calves, and I really miss them, they were just members of the family. A couple of years ago, we were driving along a road and I saw and man milking a Guernsey, by hand, in a little open shed. I just immediately could smell that good, clean, milky, warm, cow smell. Love cows. And we are going to cut the oats for hay.
