VA - they will be better when the wet is gone and I can get on the fields to cut them. It is still raining and another Low Pressure area is hanging around our Eastern coast. With that, the outlook is for rain, rain, and more rain. We've had about 15" of our annual 52" in the last month in some areas. Wide localized flooding. Rivers and creeks are way up.

I watch this gage at Lk. Harney, SR 46, on the St. Johns River, as a bell weather for my land. As the gage rises, it is a measure of the tremendous amount of captured rainfall in the contributory lands that runoff to the river. Not all lands are low lying, but localized flooding occurs at my property due to nowhere for the water to go and making that change would be a big deal due to the flat lands surrounding me.
