    • Heck I just wanted a good rain yesterday! 1/10 of an inch isn’t going to cut it! I tried to plow my garden yesterday and in most of the garden area the top 6-8 inches is so dry my plow wouldn’t even penetrate more than 2-3 inches so I am going to have to run sprinklers before I can properly plow ground! I have a 4 ft. Commercial rotovator/tiller! I hope I am very wrong but got a strange feeling we are going to have a hot dry late spring and summer season with the big Bermuda high parked over Southeast !
    • WxSouth posted on FB yesterday and mentioned the potential for a significant weather event for the southeast (somewhere in the 7 to 10 day range, I think.  I read that when I was half asleep.)  Any idea what he is referring to?  The southeast is a big place and there are so many kinds of weather that could be "significant."  Just hoping no severe stuff.
    • Yes it did. 🙂 May the force be with you. 🙂
    • Something awesome happened last night, it seemed like all the lightning went AROUND Dawson County 
    • Glad there was no damage but glad the forecast verified. 🙂
