We bought some property to build on in September. We had time to mow it one time, and have not been able to do anything else sense then. Rain has kept it so wet out there that we can't get the dirt work done to start out house!

I agree in my part of the state....DFW


But in the Angelo area, since my deer season is officially over, it can rain all it wants out there. Well...at least until April and the gobblers start looking for girlfriends..

Little too much of a good thing this year. Looks like lots of sunshine for the next few days so hopefully things will dry out a bit.

First time I can remember that the ground under my feeder never dried out, and it was just a mud hole the entire season.

Send it across the river! We had a dry winter! If it wasn't for our wet winter last year we would have been in a world of hurt this past year, this year we won't have that luxury.

We are supposed to get another inch of rain tomorrow in East Texas...Angelina County has had a flood warning issued since the end of September, now it says “has been extended until further notice” lol. They can’t even put a guess on when the rivers will drop to normal.
