In all honesty it really depends on what side of town you are on. Here imby I have 3 inches of rain since June 1. I had standing water under the trees this morning. I went out about 3:30 and did some cutting and I had water coming up out of the yards on the mower tire along the street line.Some yards that I don't do had standing water in the curb grass area. No curbs in the area I was working in today. Once I got up further into the yard not as much water coming up. The farm fields are swamps around here, planting has been done but they cannot get in there to treat them or do any other type of work.
The airport is actually down on precip for the year but it is only 2 tenths of an inch. While on this side of town I know we are above precip for the year. All this water has actually stunted the growth some. Yards are getting a tint to it showing it has to much water on them. We need a few days of dry weather, but it looks like that might not be the case.
