    we have gotten just over 5'' in the last week.things have turned green again!:) now the fun part is to cut between the rain because when it comes it comes hard.all the corn is gone,not much good but it came just right for the cotton.

    In our part of E. Texas, just south of Tyler we have had just over 11" this month. I'm a homeowner. Mowed last Saturday, and again yesterday afternoon. and took off almost 6" of growth. Temperatures have been a bit cool. When it heats up a bit with all the avalible moisture I don't know how I am going to keep up.

    My Mom lives in Cedar Bluff, and my sister has Property their also.
    I've been down there 3 time so far this year.

    Please send rain our way. Three weeks have gone by since I have mowed some places. We did't have a good spring of rain. We need rain.
