Stormy Weather


In Arkansas, it seems as if we went an entire week with tornadic storms, high winds, and flooding. For the month of April, we have received just over 20 inches of rain at the ranch. That pretty much catches us up with our 15 inch deficiet from last year’s drought and a dry start to 2011.

But all of this rain at once isn’t turning out to be a good thing. All of this runoff water is filling up and washing out the ponds, but that means less is soaking into the topsoil where it is really needed. The Saline River bottoms stack up pretty easily, and the guys say from here on out, the bottoms will flood out everytime there is a decent rain. Here’s to being water logged!
