    Our ground is so dry, there is nothing to freeze on the upper few inches!
    I decided to turn over some crp ground for a small plot and it turned just fine.
    Went to southern ks over the weekend and its even worse down there.

    We are going to be hurting, I just heard its been one of the driest Feb in history.

    Yes dry everywhere West of the Mississippi. Fear not though. I did not order trees form MDC this year so there will not be a draught this summer. :mad2::

    Its powder dry at our place. We were burning off crop ground again this weekend, and once the burn went thru, the open ground was like a dust bowl. We need alot of rain to get the ground moisture up to normal. I need to brush hog our warm season grasses,,but I hate to set in the dust cloud it will make.

    had a backhoe digging up some stumps today to get the combine in better,we were down to about four feet getting them out, down to the crawdaddy clay and we never hit any moisture to speak of.een at four feet the dirt would fall out of the bucket without any sticking to speak of.we need it bad all ready.

    Don't know about how good of a chance of rain there is this weekend. Seems the chance on Wed has went to 0% and the weekend has went from a 70% to 30% chance in the matter of a few hours. The idiots, I mean weather men, always seem to be predicting rain 5-7 days out but as those days approach the chance keeps getting pushed back so the day is was supposed to rain never really gets here. My guess is that March will be warm/hot for this time of year and bone dry. Later on in spring (April and May) it will be cold and damp with a few flooding (+/- 5 inch or more rains) mixed in. Then the rain will shut off for about 3-4 months and it will be hot and dry as h*ll. That pattern seems to be the norm of late.......no winter to speak of, spring getting started in Feb., return of winter in April and May when it is supposed to be warming up, and then full blown summer until about November.
