    :bangin:Thats what I'd like to do to the weatherman.
    when I went to bed last night the national weather service forecast ffor Chariton county was for Heavy
    Rain maybe as much as 3/4 to 1 inch, it got the sidewalk wet here. How can those guys be wrong all the time and keep there Job! I know they are going to miss everyonce and a while but they have missed here the last 3-4 forecasts.
    Whats worse Im probably screwed on my food plots because i used there forecast and planted thinking it would rain. A tenth on a inch will probably swell the seed and not bring it up. Whats worse how about the Farmers They are needing it bad for ponds and grass and to bring this years crop up
    I just wish they wouldnt say 90 percent chance of rain and it doesnt rain. OK I FEEL BETTER NOW I HAVE VENTED.

    Boy keith You sure know how to hurt A guy.

    No really Im glad somebody got a nice rain.
    you must be south of here, I also heard that around KC they got some nice rain

    I did talk to the guy that lives by my farm and they didnt get any at all
    which is probably better than getting a tenth and swelling the seed
    maybe it will wait for a rain.

    We was hurting here also. Went in the new year over 12 inches low and now still some 15 inches below normal. Lot of new wells going in for watering cattle and water for homes that have dry wells. SW Missouri.

    I'm tired of the weatherman. And to make matters worse, they took the radar system off teh cablea year or so ago. The only way to have some idea of what's going to happen, in my opinion, is to have access to the radar. It takes too long to get on line every time I want to know what it's goign to do, so that ticks me off as well!:banghead:
