We are down 2688. When I left at 2 today I could tell it was gonna have a chance. Bring it on. The lakes are already running around the spillways.

Thanks for the update.

Set yourself up in the FarmLogs website. You can actually go in and map out your exact property. It will ask what your crop is. I just put mine in as "pasture". When you get rain, you will get an email telling you exactly how much you got. There is also a tracker that keeps up with daily totals that will add up to your year to date. I hunt in the Catarina area and so far this year, I think we've had about 12.78" on our pasture. Oh - and FarmLogs is free !

I don't think Farmlogs will report an exact rain amount but I think it is a good barometer. Heck most rains vary by 1/2" from the north and south side of my place. FL estimates the total rainfall from the NOAA radar estimates.

According to FL, I've only had 6.98" since Jan 1

I continually see discrepancies in the total amount of rain that the Doppler radar shows.
It usually under estimates the amount of rain. For the year it is off by a several inches at my place.

Farm Logs said we have gotten 5.53"s since Jan 1. We got that much in a 2 day stretch back in April. That was confirmed by guys that were there. I would say it is not very accurate.

Farm Logs has been really accurate at our place. In fact, last year it was around 0.50in off from the yearly total. This year, it shows we have received 12.15in so far and I have 12.65in listed on my rain log spreadsheet.

It is starting to dry up at our place. Still pretty green though. We only got enough rain last week to keep the dust down.

All the new growth is starting to shrivel up for us on the Jim Wells/Duval county line. Hopefully we get something before long but the forecast doesn't look good. The deer have really started to hammer the protein though for the first time this year.

Another nice round of rain is hitting STX now. Great to see some more as things were beginning to dry up a bit.

IT was pouring in Catarina around 11:30am. We tried to get some protein out but turned around and headed home. Easily a couple of inches.

Yup. The boys were down and said a big storm hit and dumped a bunch with more coming. Good timing.

We got 2.75" near Charlotte yesterday. Woke up early and mowed camp. Ended up coming home instead of filling feeders. Getting pounded in Portland this morning.

Our place in Frio County got 3.5" over the last few days. Shaping up for another good looking season. This should help with fawn cover and further the forbs and spring growth.

not to be a pain but does anyone know if more rain hit Catarina other than Saturday? I need to get down there but am not sure if I will be able to get around and don't wanna tear up roads or the low spots.

Looks like less than .25 Monday-Tuesday for Catarina.
Here is what I use and found it to be very accurate.

I love this rain. Our shredding and cedar clearing has come to halt for fear of running over a fawn.

We didn't get any yesterday but did get a shower this morning. Not hard but enough to keep the grass growing. Just south of Choke.

Looks like South Texas will be getting a good amount this week! Hopefully it is spread out over multiple days and we can avoid flash flooding etc.

We aren't far from you in McMullen. I bet we aren't 15-20 minutes from the X.

I feel your pain. We put out 26 tons of protein this weekend and 3 tons of cottonseed. You would think they would back off with all the greens and mesquite beans but they keep hammering away. The deer are in great shape in Catarina.
