Default How much rain…..

……did everyone get ? I’m kinda on the low side here but I’m appreciative of every drop. I had 2 1/4” in my gauge. I’d love to hear that everybody who was parched got some much needed rain.

It couldn’t have come at a better time. I need to spray some herbicide and it does better when stuff is growing. This rain should kickstart growth and I’ll probably spray Friday, give it a week, then mow and plant.

1 1/2 at my ranch in western young county. A few miles in every direction got 3 -4 +. It does look like Throckmorton county missed out mostly too.

Right at 2 in here at my house in NW houston.

My 6" gauge at the house overflowed mid morning yesterday so I'm not sure. The lease in the south of Shakelford County got zero, zip, nada. That area gets bypassed a lot for some reason. It is remarkable how many times we've watched a big cell either split and go around us or quickly fizzle right before it gets to us. Everything is still cracks-in-the-ground dry but the creek is up and running strong from heavy rain just up the watershed.

Northwestern Montague County since Saturday night received 6.25" such a blessing! Thank you Lord! Many tanks in the area are 75% to 100% full now so local lakes may now see accumulations with additional rainfall.

At the house here in Fruitvale I had right at 8 inches. My wife talked to a few neighbors by our other place about 6 miles north. One said his gauge showed 6 inches. The other 3 said they had 10 inches.

don't know how much but been watching the radar for the lease SW of Hamilton and it looks like they had some light rain pass through yesterday. Better than nothing but seems like almost every shower that went through the area missed us.

weather forecast on Sunday was 40-80% chance of rain every day for the next 10 days. Looked like a drought buster on the way. Got a little rain yesterday and now the forecast shows only a 30% chance for 2 days out of 10. Not sure how it changes than much over the course of a couple of days.

We got 1 and 4/10 at the house in Caddo Mills.

The deer lease south of Mason looks to have picked up a decent rain as well. The closest LCRA rain gauge shows 1.71 inches. Have not confirmed with the landowner how much we actually got.

Every part of llano Cnty got a decent rain. The big rain you just have to be under the right cell. I live in llano Cnty on the south end of Buchanan about 1.5 0ff 29 in Pointella subdivision if that helps any
