October Is The Driest Month Of The Year?

8 Oct

October is usually the driest month of the year according to historical averages, but this week, the weatherman is calling for rain every day. I don’t want any rain for the next 6 weeks, harvest is in full swing.


There are cotton fields all over the area, wide open, waiting to be picked.


Fields like this will be damaged if they are rained on, so I hope the rains will hold off.


Our garden is about finished, but I noticed this cantaloupe growing between the trellis and the wall of my shop.


It should taste just fine, it just looks kinda’ funny.



You can sure tell Fall is here, people are putting out their Fall displays of pumpkins, gourds and mums.


There are even some mums outside of my bank. Come on in and give us your money. HA! I might as well put it under my mattress for all the interest I am drawing. Can you say “ZERO”?


Oreo says it is time to go, so I will be back soon. Keep prepping everyone!

    Our pattern up here shows October being a bit wetter than September but that ain’t saying much. January shows to be the driest overall though. Still it is odd I posted about it a week ago or so it seems we are getting rain but it is coming all out of sorts. Being dry when it is suppose to be wet and wet when it is suppose to be dry.
