09:30, 78f, clear and sunny. day will heat up fast.
another big thunderstorm rolled in from the east last night with some good rain and a lot of lightning. same thing occurred saturday night. over-all rainfall amount around 2".
limbs and dead trees are falling again. not much wind involved so it must be the weight from the rain.
fall wildflowers are coming up in the fields and along the roadsides. willows, pecans, and elms are turning rusty. grapes are ripe and acorns are plumping up.
had sheep in the yard but they didn't touch the grass, just cleared out the shepherds needles and another assortment of "weeds" and then snuck down to the hay barn and savaged a bale of oat hay. sneaky sheep. might not let them in the yard today.
maybe the donkeys would like to come in and crop some grass..

that's about the same here in our neck of the woods. the hay farmers can't get 3 dry days in a row to cut, dry, fluff, and bale their hay, which is getting high from all the rain..
3 or 4 days of dry weather would help them out but it gets dry, dry so fast around here.. 3 days without rain in this heat, the ground gets dusty and dry. no one wants to go without rain for very long, esp. the peanut farmers.
a rock and a hard place..

What a bunch of bad sheep:)

Up in WNC last week. They are preparing any field they can get on for an extra cutting of hay. They expect to be a full cutting short from their regular fields from all the rain.
