How high's the water, mama?

Four inches high and rising.

We've had a near constant mist, drizzle, or downpour since early yesterday evening. My dad said that his rain gauge read 4 inches a little before 3am this morning, and I know we've had a fair amount more since then. The tv weatherman said to expect this weather throughout the rest of the day, with another 2-4 inches possible.

The last several weeks have been very wet. And even though it's making parts of our pastures and our "high-traffic" areas pretty muddy and sloppy, it's really helping to get our water table built back up after the last few dry summers we've had. I just hope the clouds save some rain for June-August.

I'm not sure what we'll get into this morning once all the heifers have been fed. We'll probably try to find something to do in our barn or shop so we can stay under a roof.
