Just got another round of snow, maybe inch to inch and a half.

Don't practice until you get it right. Practice until you can't get it wrong.

Got another 4"-6" on the way, maybe more.  I think it is heading south and east!  There will also be frost on the pumpkins(actually a flash freeze)!

6" on the ground last weekend and still coming down!  -13F at Badger Manor this morning.  Old Man Winter is definitely flexing his muscles!

...and we might get our first frost/freeze this weekend and I am ready for it. I wish it would snow.

Got our first last night. Most of it melted when it hit the ground. Glad we are down to our last 15 acres of sugar beets. The coop says the beet crop is 60% harvested. Sure hope it doesn't decide it just wants to freeze up now.

We finally got our first freeze/frost last night after 2 days of hard rain and heavy winds. We got 6.25" of rain in 2 days. That puts over 90" of rain for the year so far.

Same here Kevin. It's supposed too get colder next week mid week. Our coop is hoping to get to 80% harvested by then. They can get hard to harvest after extended solid freeze even if it does thaw out again. There were a few guys trying it tonight. It can't be going good. They are getting pretty desperate. I'm hoping we can get the rest of ours Sunday. Supposed to rain again Monday and then get cold again

Whew, that's a lot of rain!  Where are you?  Pacific northwest I'm guessing?

BJ, hope you can get your beets in before the ground hardens up.  I grew up in the Bighorn Basin (northern Wyoming) and it was always a race to get them in.

I live south of Brevard, NC. We have the second highest rainfall in the continental US only next to the Olympic Peninsula. Our normal amount, over the last 25 years has been 70" but last year we had 140" , this year not so much. (R

I had no idea it was so wet out there.  I went to school in Portland, Oregon back in the 90s and we usually didn't see the sun from November until about April.  It was always a challenge not to get depressed, being from cold but sunny Wyoming.  It's all what you're used to I guess.
