Most ponds were filled or at least received some water.
Picture of a creek running full. 2 miles west of my farm.
Picture of another creek out of its banks, also 2 miles west of my farm.
Picture of the Smoky Hill River running. 3 miles west and 4 miles north of my farm. The Smoky hasn't seen this much water in years.
After the rain, the ground was soft enough to dig a hole and install a new rain gauge.
I actually showed my youngest son how to plumb the post using a torpedo level and use a tamper to set it.

Our 5 day weather forecast. Rain should give way to sunshine and warmer temperatures. The milo looks extremely refreshed, the rain came about 2-3 weeks to late to truly help the corn. I'm sure once the surface dries the ground rigs will be spraying full force dawn to dusk. The weeds are taking advantage of the moisture as well.
Re: Weather Pictures
Great pics Shaggy. I'm always glad when KS gets rain. Maybe next year you can plant 32,000 population corn and grow a "full" crop instead of a "half a crop with 16,000 pop. Just teasing. Does the Smokey Hill River flow east or west? Can't remember.
After a dry spell when it finally rains I always think of this song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5onEt7SIdtM It reminds me of really where the blessing come from.
PS no, that is not my wife nor my daughter.
