Wet But Dry

Unless you rely on cistern water (water that is captured off roofs into storage tanks for use), ponds or springs, you may not realize how dry it has been. If you have to haul water for the home or livestock due to the lack of rain, it is an issue. I really didn’t notice it until last week when the cows would come off the hill every day to drink from water troughs further away from where they graze as the springs on the hill were barely running and not keeping up. Then over the weekend, I was digging holes to replace fence posts and the ground was completely dry 30 inches deep. While the rains will create mud, we need some soaking rain to help the water table get back up to normal levels. Hopefully, the rain forecasted for today will help.
