It was/is supposed to rain three days straight from Friday night through Monday. So far, I have received .01 of an inch in Prior Lake. Last weekend was the same thing - I believe I got .05 inch. The song I remember growing up of "April showers in the skies" does not seem to be happening this year (at all).
When I expressed my concerns to my father about the lack of rain, he told me that the old adage by the farmers is, "plant in the dust and the bins will bust." Meaning, that a lack of rain in the spring will usually lead to steady rain through the rest of the year. Hopefully, that will be the case this year.
I have been very tempted to pull out the watering hose, but so far have refrained from watering anything. If we don't get the rain tonight/tomorrow, I will probably give everything a good soaking.
