That's neat me and my friends talk about wanting to buy that place all the time. I like the way its set up, and its very well kept. Do you know how big the ranch is?

John only grows hay now aka hayman

John is my weather guru down there. I think the 175 acre place you speak of is owned individually according to JW. Looks like more rain this morning.

John knew our aunt and was a great guy and did a lot for her.

If I understand what they did to that place is they fixed the house up and fenced it off and sold the house and some acres separately and kept the back.

Good news. That should take care of the rest of the growing season. Hopefully we get a early cold front to cut back on the brush.

This is the first beneficial rain since May for me. It's too late to save a very dry summer here. FarmLogs had 10.25" for the year until the rain this week.

I'm curious to how accurate FarmLogs really is. It shows we got over 6"s since Saturday, but I talked to a guy that works on the ranch was told only 2 1/2 - 3"s. How does their amount stack up to your rain gauge?

I've been using farm logs for a couple years off & on at 3 different locations, all about 90 miles apart. I don't find it to be terribly accurate on the whole. Sometimes it'll be pretty close to actual, sometimes it'll be off by a wide margin.

At some point I'm just going to put a large easy to read rain gauge out in front of one of my GoCams so I can see for myself how much it's raining on my trail camera pictures.

I have had pretty good luck with Farm logs - I have gauges at three spots - two in Georgetown and one in Maverick and when I compare it is pretty darn close most all of the time

trail cam on gauge is a great idea
