    Got another 1.5 inches today. That’s 5.5 inches since Sat night. That’ll make a dent in the drought.

    ive come to rely on gimruis for my weather related information. When in a droubt i thought i read somewhere that the ground is so hard that it cant absorb heavy rainfall fast enough and so in the event of a heavy rain the water just washes away more or less.

    Glad you guys are getting some much needed rain! We got some, not a lot, but it still helps.

    The most recent drought monitor has shown the biggest improvement since May 1 in classification status after a multi-day rain event.

    Extreme drought went from 26% to only 8% since last Thursday across the state of Minnesota. waytogo

    More rain moving through this morning. Lightning/thunder too. The farmers won’t be going in the fields anytime soon. It has to be a mud pit out there right now.

    This has to be a total kick in the pants to the farmers, no friken rain all summer and now it’s a field of soup when it’s time for harvest. I respect them greatly but would never want to have that job. Glenns right you are our weather lady but have nothing on Belinda. smirk jester

    LOL

    You’re absolutely right tho, no rain in May/June when it was needed (and often comes), and then a monsoon in September right when they were starting to harvest soybeans. Such is the life of a farmer, at the mercy of mother nature.

    On the positive side it certainly helps with soil moisture heading into winter. Last fall we didn’t have any rain for over 2 months.

    I guess we could have some real noise overnight tonight. I heard a few boomers this morning, but little rain to show for it.

    The next drought monitor should be dramatically different for many. For me it wont change much we have been big losers lately. About .3″ all week.

    Here at the cabin in Two Harbors we had 8” last weekend. We’ve had one day of Sun since and more rain forecast now for the next two days.

    Fishing has sucked but the grouse are plentiful. We had a couple for dinner last night.

    Ya sure, Now we get lots of it. Feel bad for all those farmers. As if they did not already have a brutal year, and now this. It is good for a lot of the local lakes though. We were looking at going into the winter with some real low lakes. This late rain has helped a little.

    I’ve caught up on about a 7.5 inch deficit of rain since May 1 in one week. I’ve gotten about 9.5 inches the past 7 days. My yard is like a big sponge right now when I walk around.

    With all the rain and lightning the Lawns around here look the best they have all season. I debated about putting down some grass seed this late in the year. But after looking at the forecast for the next 10 days, I think it will be warm enough to get some good growth prior to colder temps shutting it down. I’m going home and getting it seeded. Sure would be nice to have a few of those brown spots to come out of winter looking better. If it does not work, I’ll just jump on it again in the spring

    I think they say Fall is the best time to overseed. What doesnt germinate this Fall will in the Spring anyway.

    There looks to be a slow-moving incoming low pressure system arriving in the southern half of MN starting Thursday night and exiting sometime on Saturday. 2-4 inches of rain is possible across the entire South Dakota, MN, and Wisconsin region.

    This is the type of moisture that is greatly beneficial when it falls steady over a couple days, rather that a quick down pour. Not good for harvesting crops though. This is going to delay that, again.
