TEKA RANCH - WHERE THE FUN NEVER ENDS - MAY 29, 2018 - TUESDAY
Last night while I was brushing my teeth, I happened to glance at the throne. The water was swishing this way and that. That's when I realized that the wind had really come up from the east. It only blew hard for a few minutes, bringing about 6 raindrops, and then it was over.
We received .11" of rain in a quick shower this morning. That amount will be added to the 1.05" that we have gotten since it snowed.
Terry needed some sickle sections for the haybine, so we went to town. While Terry got the oil changed in the pickup, I helped at GSI. We didn't get home until mid-afternoon.
I finished putting the wires up around the little pasture and took pictures of flutterbys. Both of the butterflies were torn and tattered. Their colors weren't very bright either.
We have seen some wild turkey poults and they are good-sized already. It doesn't seem possible that they could have been hatched before the last blizzard and survived.
Terry put the new sickle sections on the sickle and took Chad a few bales.
The maple trees by the corral had lots of suckers, so I trimmed them off.
The rain that was forecast for here went east of us. And that is all from here.
