With all the recent rainfall, which ranges from around 4 to 5 inches in some areas to over seven in other areas, our county has finally gotten out of the grip of the drought. At least for now. As you know, the next drought starts after the last rain stops!
This was not forecasted to be a wet spring for Terry County, but wet it has been. The rains have, for the most part, fallen well and have been pretty timely.
The need now is for some sunshine and warm days to allow our producers to get back in their very wet fields. They all say this is a great problem to have and one they were not anticipating!
This is also the time when mosquitoes will be appearing. Dump all cans or barrels, or anything that might have caught water in the rains. This is where the mosquitoes like to live and breed. Some mosquitoes can carry very deadly diseases, so be very aware of trying to prevent their breeding in your yard.
Enjoy this moisture and pray for our producers!
