Lubbock in NW Texas just set a record 99 days (since 1911) with no measurable precip, from 11/8/17 to 2/15/18. It was broken 2/16 with .01 measured at the airport.

Just sayin...

Global warming

If you look back 50 yrs & more the smartest , brightest minds on this globe thats warming have predicted the dangers of ignoring our environment as if we , man, have no control over it..Man has altered this earth drastically & long before the industrial revolution. But all that said , it is not just an opinion. It is factual. And until people on this planet learn to respect it, & moreover, take it out of the political & religious arena , it will not change. Our great grand children should have a nice clean earth to grow up on...

Global warming is a farce

Global warming is a sham. It is all about money and control. It has nothing to do with actual warming of the earth. Global warming supporters are a bunch of over educated idiots.

Year forecast

Was correct for Dallas Fort Worth tx last year so far this year 2018 too, well correct as in + - 2% of the time you can't get closer unless jesus was to tell you. Am wanting to get out in the yard to work already but I know February is our end of winter its a tricky month here it is warm now but to be cold later so I'm holding off on planting. I see you say what is normal for us is forecast to happen again so thanks for the hard work trying to say this in advance for us farmers and gardeners.

gardening season

Thank YOU for your faith in and appreciation of what we do.  Here’s hoping that this coming growing season is one of your best ever!


You said exactly what I am feeling, to satisfy my needs to get my hands in some dirt, I have been preparing the ground to recieve the seeds, so with your remark it makes me feel better about that. I have purchased a mixture of manure and soil to work into the garden, I feel that by the first of the month it should except the seeds without being to strong, I am not sure of this so I do need advice on it. I'm planting cantaloupes, watermelon,kale,okra,peppers,green onions and mustard, I would love to have a good harvest. Please send me all the advice you have on this. Thank you.

MORE rain than Normal?

After getting 50 inches of rain in Texas last year and being flooded two years in a row in a place that has never flooded.... This is NOT what I really wanted to see... What is "normal"?

Rainfall for 2017-18

I live in central Oklahoma four miles from the Kansas border. We have had no measurable precipitation since September when we received.6” of rain. We are back in extreme drought. Was so hoping for a change in the forecast for snow or rain:(

Where was our share of that 50 inches last year?

I don't know where April lives in Texas, but here in the Texas Hill Country we did not get anywhere near 50 inches of rain last year. We are in a terrible dry spell. Our winter grass is all gone and our hay is almost depleted. Even if we get 4-6 inches of rain right now it will take another month for the grass to revive so our cattle will have something to eat. In the meantime we are looking for hay for our cattle. The water tanks in the pasture that our cattle depend on to get water during the summer are nearly empty so we could have used some of that 50 inches of rain you got last year, April. Even the hurricanes didn't bring us any rain up here. If it were possible it would be nice if somehow the rain could have been shifted a little to the northwest where it was REALLY needed last year. We keep praying for rain so any prayers from the folks on the Texas coast to give us a little respite from this really DRY winter season would be appreciated.


I'm ready for spring and warmer weather
