I just returned from ranch and it was impossible to get to most of the pastures. Driving was an adventure, Take plenty of quarters for the car wash.

Quite a few ranches should be catching some rain with more in sight! Trip may be getting cancelled but if so no better reason than because of rain!

Too wet, decided to fly here ( Nosara), fish for a week or so then try to cross again. Should be really rutted up. We have high centered on ruts when loaded down, the last couple of trips after a big rain.

Heading down in the morning. Had my order in for 2 weeks for cottonseed, guy sends a text this morning and says he cant get any so no delivery. First time I tried to get it delivered and didn't know if this happens often. I guess we will drink beer and put out some corn. Still have a spot open if anyone is interested.

Guys, The link below is to an pod cast interview Joe Rogan did with a X Mexican cop Ed Calderon. From what he says he was in Medical school, the downturn hit and he became a police officer. He had no idea this ment the front line. Got admire a guy who gives cartel straight talk.

We missed all the rain again. We are at about 1.5'' total for the year. Last year was basically the same for us until September. 15 miles W of NL off the pipeline.

Probably not great. We are about 10 miles East of that intersection, and have not hit 2” for the year.

The Coahuila ranches seem to be doing better.

West of Villa Union got mist rain Thursday. My cowboy said he watched the rain all around us, hate when that happens. Hopefully the spin in the gulf will come our way.

Fingers crossed on the gulf spin up. Hope it makes landfall in Mexico and we get the wet side (east side) of the storm up around NL.

Wasn't bad last couple of days. Highs in the low 90s, ranch looks unreal. Haven't seen it this green in a long time. All our tanks are full, brush looks lush and they're still killing the LnE.

Looks like our beans are almost ready and the tunas are a couple of weeks out.
