Hooray for Rain!!

We were finally blessed with some rain last night. We got close to 3/4 of an inch. The bad news is that the wind is blowing hard today (20-30mph), so some of that moisture will be sucked up before long. A cat being chased by a tumbleweed is quite a site.

We were in desperate need of the rain. It was so dry that the electric fence wasn't "shocking" the cattle and they were just ducking under and going over it to get out. It isn't fun to put cattle in daily and spend time in the wind trying to figure out where they escaped or why the fence isn't working. (Not that I did that, mom got stuck doing that last night and today) Hopefully we received enough rain to keep the wheat alive and growing. It's funny to hope your road is muddy.
