We continue to hang on around here. It’s dry, but we are feeling lucky for the little bit of moisture we have received. We ran into a neighbor earlier this week; sounds like west of here it gets really tough. Friends and family east river say they can’t buy a rain. It’s not easy to watch the August heat continue to dry out the prairie and crops. We continue to look on the bright side as optimism is a prerequisite to making a living in production Agriculture.
Last weekend J and I moved pairs to a new paddock. This pasture has a spring fed creek running through it. The bank of the creek has green grass.
The town I work in is on a Rural Water System. The system sprang a leak someplace and the town water tower ran dry. Yes, you read that right an entire small town (population 375) without water for about a 24 hour period. The rural area that the water system serves has been without water for a few days. Yesterday afternoon the town allowed water use in very restricted amounts. I am thankful for our ranch well.
