The skies have been opening up on the fields of Central Nebraska and nourishing our crops with life sustaining water!
Each drop...every single one...helps alleviate the drought we have been in the past 2 years.
2011 was quite wet all year and then in early fall the rains (and snows) stopped and we dried out.
2012 was tough for anyone who did not have irrigation to their crops...
...and the pastures and cattle herds really felt it.
2013 started ok and then dried out and now over the last week we have received million dollar rains.
Sadly...it may be too late for the dry land crops...but many farmers remain optimistic that they still might have at least some crop.
More rain is predicted...and with the crops reaching maturity where they really need water, we hope that we can catch some 1 and 2" rains.
But please leave the wind and hail behind!!
Until next time...
