I sat on Monday morning when the front rolled through and rain started. Didnt see anything but didnt lose a pint of blood to skeeters. My creek bottom is flooded right now.

Plus side...maybe this flooding will wash the acorns away and cause the cervids to focus on the corn.

Donít know about the rest of you, but we have had more rain than we can stand out here in this part of the world! It needs to let up and dry out a bit now!!

I left Mertzon headed home to Denton yesterday morning early. It rained on me all the way home. Stopped long enough to unpack my stuff and danged if it didn't start again. I am tired of this. In August I'll be bellyaching about he lack of rain though.

After 6 months of no rain at all, pastures burned up, tanks dried up, having to feed hay 2 times a day all summer, this is a blessing. I wish i could archive some of it for next summer.

I know it's " apples and oranges" but I honestly can't remember the last day it didn't rain over here. My San Augustine died a couple of weeks ago. Its a swamp!! Mosquitoes are so bad we can't keep them out of our mouths and noses. And this being a "third world state", they're not gonna spend good money on mosquito spray.

We are two miles from the blacktop.
Our private road is very close to being impassable.
I suspect by morning it will be.

We're expecting rain all the way through Saturday, so we're pretty screwed.

Yes, rain is a blessing. I just wish we didn't have to blessed with it all at once.

People flooding all over, and some still wishing for rain because their yard isn't green enough or their local lake is a couple feet below full pool. Crazy.

I'm thinking about going into the frog ranching business. I planted wheat last Friday. As of 2:30 this afternoon, the good Lord has put 6.35" of rain on it. I hope that the neighbors appreciate the free seed.

Rain makes corn.

That said there are some that need relief.

The problem is, you can't!!!! So lots of folks houses are ruined, and lives are severely disrupted because this is too much at once. And next summer, the pastures are likely to be burned up again. This is too much, and we don't need anymore for a while!!!!!

Yes Bisch but it isn't something we control. There is no rhyme or reason why. It's nature at it's most brutal. We have changed the natural run off and stream dynamics to suit our needs and wants. Sometimes nature decides that we aren't in control and shows us how futile our attempts are to control it.

Understood! But that does not change the fact that we are waterlogged, and don't need any more rain for quite a while!!!!

Climbed in my lock on this morning. Trying to figure out why my skin was burning all of the sudden. Apparently hanging that stand on the creek bank is a bad idea because the ants ate me up. Guess I have a lot more lessons to learn here huntin in Texas. Always like learning something new but dang!!!!!!!!

Whiplash weather changes arenít good for anybody. We went from devastating drought to devastating floods in 2 months time. You canít survive without water, thatís for sure. But in some areas all this moisture is starting to do more harm than good.
Extreme weather fluctuations...is this the new normal?

I went to the lease on Monday afternoon. Had 1.1" in the gauge. Went to the blind about 4:30 and it was muddy but I wanted to see what was moving. It started misting then drizzle, then rain. I crawled out and pinballed my way back to camp. Both ponds are overflowing. They had dried up this summer. Pasture went from brown to green everywhere. Hopefully is dries up enough to get around by opening weekend of regular season.

All that I know for sure is that it is going to be tough hunting with all this green stuff growing. Then in January or February all this green stuff is going to be fuel. I don't need another wildfire. Once in a lifetime is enough.

We are at the point of having to drag vehicles in & out with a 4x4 tractor.
It would be nice if staying at home was an option, but it isn't.

The ground is so saturated, that the lateral lines for the septic system are no longer leeching away the water, so for the first time in 35 years our septic is stopping up.

Yeah, it can stop raining now. PLEASE

Was over there last night and this morning. Got enough break in the weather to drop off some fencing and do a bit of work before driving back to Fort Worth in the rain. Definitely wet and I put the Taco in 4wd in a couple spots on the place. Deer were everywhere though. The feeder at my Maverick blind had a dead battery and I still had a fork horn come by in the rain to check it.

We canít get into our lease in Mason for what was looking like two weeks, now with this hurricane making land fall in Mexico it could be even longer. So much for the early rut. Hoping for better luck come November and December!😞

I have water backed up in pastures I've never seen water in before. I love the rain but it sure is hurting my hay supply and winter oat fields.
