Wow we’ve need rain and now we are getting it!

So far from Tuesday to Thursday at noon we have gotten over 4″ (with more to come)!

So Matt mentions how much rain it is! Our son, Darrell comments that isn’t a lot. So homeschooling dad that he is, he decides to calculate the true amount of rain we have received. It is a bit impressive!

Since we got 4 inches of rain we would multiply by 4.
 

 

So there you go. This is what farmers do on rainy days!
