We were fortunate not to have any consequences of Hurricane Bill that flirted off our coast line this weekend other than some rain. Did we get some rain? Oh, Yes in the past 36 hrs we measured 5.7 inches. We were certainly glad to have the rain but it did add some additional work. Cows and heifers had to be shifted to more well drained paddocks, wet hay bales had to be discarded, silo filling had to be halted for a day. On the plus side, everything got a drink, a reseeding project will be moistened for the tillage equipment, and our Teff hay will produce another cutting.
Walking around this morning morning I confronted a beast of a snapping turtle enjoying the high water and crawling through the water logged pasture.
