I'll take whatever rain we get. 9/10th of an inch in August on top of very little rain in late July has my plots suffering. September is almost always our monsoon season so I'll take it when I can get it.
I could use some on my newly planted areas but 1-2" will not be a good thing. I'll have standing water on the low areas just like this spring after the beans went in. 20% of them never came up because of it. A good soak will be fine for me...
This has been the best rain I've seen in a long time. We got only .5" over 2 showers in August and everything was browning up. It started raining here in No Ill about 6 this am and have gotten about an inch so far. The best part "no wind" so far in my area. I planted wheat and some more rape on Tuesday so this is great. At this rate we might get 1.5" before its over. Hope you guys are as lucky.
Beautiful all day soaker! Man I love hurricanes!!!:yikes: Looks like Kent and Montcalm counties will end up with a couple inches. The food plots will explode and there electric green color will fill the Michigan countryside.
