Hallelujah! Just when I was giving up as all is going to be brown, it is finally raining. Got some wind, got some lightning, and now I see a bit of water on the windows. I've been watering the garden and flowers heavily, and it just bakes right off... Whoooo! Shades of 2011.

The bee tree hive was being investigated for a robbery this afternoon when I got home. Granted they need moved to a box, or I need that frame of brood to trap them out, but if their queen is more viable than my cutout queen (who I need to check on tomorrow)......

A bit of rain will make all the girls much happier.

Gypsi

I think it is headed that way. Front stretches from Oklahoma to the middle of Texas, moving east. Here's hoping it goes where it is needed.

It's dry in north Alabama as well. We've had low 90's for 5 straight days and no water in over 2 weeks.

my daily prayer here is.... good lord send us some moisture, but not a flood and today would be preferred over tomorrow.

we got lots of corn in IL that's knee high at curling from being dry and hot. Not good. This past weekend felt like late July, not the end of May. Some rain went just north of us last night, that will help but my garden needs some water in a bad way.

I reported 1.18 inches of rain this morning for the past 24 hours, which we needed. However, now my corn that was waist-high is now horizontal because it was blown over. :( I'm hoping it straightens up some, or maybe we can stand it back up.

Well, I think I got an inch today. And on keeping all stuff about a hive on one thread, I have duly noted that only new threads seem to get any activity. Anyone that reads this, please post a reply?

Works for me! This was a system test, now returning you to your regularly scheduled programming....

we're getting much needed water in IL too. I haven't seen a drop at my place during May but a few miles north did and as close as a mile south got 0.4" about 10 days ago.
