You know it has been a rainy day when you've gone through three pairs of jeans and two caps and your keys, wallet, and cellphone are still wet. The rain gauge topped out at 6" this afternoon for one day's worth of rain before I dumped it. The majority of it was during the day today. Don't get me wrong, I'm very glad that tropical depression Lee is bringing us rain because it has been dry and dusty here.
Needless to say, we won't be able to do any field work this week. We had planned to continue chopping corn silage, but I suppose that will have to wait for a while.
Still, these muddy days will be put to good use. We have plenty of chores around the farm that we have been putting off. We have a couple groups of calves to move and vaccinate. There's also maintenance to do on tractors and other machinery. No one that ever looked can say there's nothing to do on a farm.
