We only received 0.3 inches out of the system in two days. Of course, no runoff.

John, I am pretty sure we are in the same boat when it comes to rainfall events this past 6 months. Dry Dry Dry! This past month was the highest electric bill I have ever had. I have a meter set up just for the water well. If it was not for the well I would be down 3' at least.

I'll be down 3' in another month or so. Wish I had a well, but then again, I don't think I'd want to run the pump enough to keep the pond full. wink

I was planning on taking some pictures Friday after work but ended up working late and it was dark by time I got home.I went over Thursday when I got off early and blew leaves off the back of the dam until it got dark.They were starting to kill my young grass. I will have to take some new pictures next weekend when I get home from Branson. I will need to blow more leaves also.

I went over and blew more leaves off the dam yesterday.The whole area needs it but I doubt that I will ever do it.lol!I do want to blow them off the sediment pond dam as soon as I get time.
They said on the news last night that we are still in a drought around here,which is getting old.lol!
Here is a few new pictures.

Bobbss, I hope this drought ends soon. We seem to just go from one drought to the next though. Weird times for sure.

Thanks Canyoncreek!I'll be glad to see it full thats for sure.We plan to build a new house on one of the ridges just above the pond.The back of the house will probably only be 100'-150' from the pond so I should have a nice view from our back deck.
SetterGuy,I won't stop hopping we get enough rain soon to fill it up or at least enough that fish could live in it but I'm starting to think it probably won't fill until spring rains.

Thank Snrub!I've never really seeded anything before so I wasn't real sure what I was doing.lol!I threw a little more seed in areas that I thought would get more water run off.With as dry as it's been,the areas that get some shade have done much better.What really doesn't help is they ran out of the better soil (top soil) on the sunny side when they was finishing things off,so it has more clayish-rockfish dirt on top and stays drier from the sun.At least they had enough for the back of the dam.

We got 0.4" of rain this morning. No run off. Raised the pond 0.4". This is typical of the past 100 days, save for one better rain.

We got about a half inch (I think)of rain last night,which gave me a few inches of water back in the pond.That was the first rain that was enough to measure,I've had in over 2 weeks.My pond has been done for well over 3 months,and still haven't had any big rains.

Bobbss, doesn't look like much coming either. At least nothing through Dec 20. My guess is we will be seeing white stuff before we get any rain. Driest fall I can remember. Sure made it easy getting all the leaves out of the yard, but that is the only benefit. This is getting ridiculous. It's to the point that I don't even remember what "normal" rainfall means. We had a 1.2" rain Aug 22. Since then it's all been in .5" or less, and not many of those.
I hope you at least got a few inches out of that last front.

SetterGuy,I think it gave me 3-4 inches.With the area being freshly cleared,I seem to get a fair amount of run off if the rain comes down fairly fast and hard.

I have to agree with this being the driest fall I can remember. I hoped to get a decant rain out of this present front but it did not happen at my place. Maybe an inch if I was lucky. We are many miles apart your place and mine, but I think the rain since last June is probably the same. Really need about a week of good rain
