Radar is a beautiful sight this morning I hope it delivers more than the forecast was calling for.

Looks like we got some in Llano yesterday (evening) and sure hope what is heading there now makes it. I stopped calling my neighbors to confirm rainfall as I always was disappointed. Man, it is powder keg dry out there.

I went to our lease in Atascosa county last weekend. One pond is completely dry and the other is a 4" deep mud puddle. Grass is completely dead. The only thing green is mesquites and cactus. We need rain bad but there is no activity in the tropics and very little predicted any time soon.

Texas turning into a dessert.
Turning into??? lol, always been a desert, just worse management of properties the last 200 years leading to to many trees sucking up massive amounts of water. Removing Mesquite and cedar and limiting live oak cover and working with more native grasses will do more for you tanks than anything.

On place we spent the coin and REALLY put a hurt on the cedar. Need to do more, we will get there but it is a constant battle. It is AMAZING how much more more water we have now than b4. Our creeks will flow for WEEKS after rain that most ppl don't think will even get them going

Have family in Gatesville, some with property I used to hunt. They are dry and thinking about selling cattle. Saw a storm brewing up there on Intellicast this morning but it looks like they are just catching the southern edge. Hope you folk to the north and west of there are getting some benefits. Praying for rain for the whole state soon.

My lease is just south of Cisco and only two tanks are holding water right now , And they are large tanks the two huge ones are down by 3/4 in depth .

The grass is brown almost no green .. Looks like maybe a bit of rain there today but not sure , game cam pics does not look like it

Who cares. It helps the ranchers and all animals and live stock. Long way to go till season still. Lots of ranchers are hurting bad.
