    The DR can always use a good "FLUSH"!
    You mean there are "Heavy Rains" on your TV?
    Better patch your roof!

    Ya.. ya ... ya. When has the D.R. ever gotten it near to close on the weather or anything?

    I need hay and none can be found in the Whole D.R.

    My pastures are dry and Coraplata is too since they don't supply what I pay for. (North Coast) Nothing unusual, THEY cut the water lines and then wait for me to call.

    Had ONE thunder strike hit over the Atlantic Ocean last night. Dunderdogs go nuts and I let them in to have vibrator bed. NO RAIN.

    I catch rain water for my cisterns... I'm down 5K gallons! I can store 60K gallons.

    So?????? where is the rain????

    MORE IMPORTANTLY...... WHERE IS MIKE FISHER?

    Gone like so many others... DR1 just NOT worth much time.

    Thanks Wud. About the only reason that I look here is for Mike's REAL weather. Looks like he has no real problem with this week.

    HAY BOB! You get me me a name and number for GOOD hay... I need and all around me needs.

    Ahhh. LET's buy it all and corner the market? Sincerely, no one has any. But hay needs to grow, be cut and DRY before collected. Otherwise the damp hay grows mold and other nasty stuff that will kill the animal eating it.
