Rain and Snow in Wheat Country

Oct 27, 2011

panhandle snowThere is moisture falling in some of the drought area this morning. I shot a picture a minute ago off the front porch. That is rain, I suppose, but it was snow not long ago.

The weather map indicates a lot of the Texas Panhandle and South Plains has had an inch or more of moisture. There are better pictures in the Amarillo paper at

Not to suggest this is a “drought breaker,” mind you. It’s still awful dry over a very large part of the Southern Plains, but darned if some of us don’t have some wheat sprouted from an earlier round of moisture a couple of weeks ago.

And, without consulting anybody that knows, this old wheat farmer thinks this will get us into winter dormancy—and a chance at more moisture—and provide a little much-needed wheat grazing if we get a warm November.
