Report from the Dakota's is that there is twice as much water there this year than last................

Should be a good one this winter.

Wish it was season right now. :wink:

That wouldn't take much considering it didn't rain for three months last year.

We've had plenty of rain across ND this spring. Bismarck has had enough rain to push the total above average for the whole summer.

It can still be a long, dry summer. Don't count your ducklings yet.

Send RAIN to Mississippi, we are around 17 inches below average here and the Delta Farmers that don't have eragation systems are crying.

IT IS DRY AS A BONE DOWN HERE!!!!!!!

Real spotty. Thems that have gets, and the rest get nadda. Aberdeen is almost swampy, as is the majority of the Jim River corridor. The Missouri isn't as fortunate. We've had some rain, but the drought conditions soaked it up in a hurry, and very little was available for runoff.

Drove up Highway 79 north of Rapid a few days ago. It was nice and green, winter wheat looked great. But the real story was in viewing Bear Butte Lake. That 700 acre impoundment was about 1/3 full, with nothing touching any shoreline. Oahe is still down about 30'. Most of the west river stock dams are still dry, unless they are spring fed.

Going south into the Panhandle of Nebraska, the North Platte River is so dry we won't be able to hold our HRC hunt test on it this weekend, so we are scrambling for water.

The old addage of it never raining unless it pours is holding true in many parts of the Dakotas, but the drought continues in our area. Comes now the temps in the 90's and 100's. Time will tell.
