We ended up with an additional 1.5. Add that to the 2.3 we received on the 6th. Its better than ususal. I doubt we got close to full, but I may just be 2 down which really helps going into fall. Who knows, it may be a wet October. So far today weve received .1 up at the pond, but almost 2 in St Louis. Hope youre getting some of this Bob.

I think that's about all I should put in my little pond.

Over the last 12 hours or so, I've got just over 3.5" of rain. I don't think I'll get much more, maybe a few more sprinkles. It came down pretty slow and steady, so not a lot of run off, and still none from the upper watershed. The pond was up at least a foot this morning, and still trickling in. I will check later and see where it's at. Not what I was hoping for, but better than nothing.

Well it didn't really come up anymore from this morning. I think it came up about 1.5' total. It's hard for me to say for sure, it went over the one measuring stake and I had to start getting my readings from the next stake up. Now to wait and see how well it holds it.lol!

We got enough rain here to fill my small sediment and forage ponds and the main pond is just right at full. I don't think any went over the overflow but it is right there. The old pond and the newish RES ponds are still a foot of so low but they have came up some.

I was glad to see the main pond up to full for the PBF get together September 22, 2018 in Pittsburg, Kansas.

Thing of it is for us farmers, some nice weather now to finish getting the corn crop out would be nice. Don't really need a muddy harvest and we are right on the edge of that now. More rain would complicate that but would be nice to finish filling the other ponds and get some flow through in the main pond.

What can I say. Farmers are never satisfied with the weather. grin

Mine came up about a 1.5. Im happy with that. We had close to 4. Some came down hard with good runoff. The pond looks much better with water in it. lol &#128514;
Mowed for hours yesterday then dove in. That rain water was on the cool side. Plus it was only 73 out. Didnt stay in too long. Water is on the brown side, hopefully itll settle some by next weekend. Grandkids in and they want to swim and catch lots of fish.

Here on the west side of MO I got plenty of rain - filled the pond and I got to see the primary drain pipe run in siphon mode. An 8 inch line can really gush a lot of water. Fortunately the emergency spillway did not come into play. Certainly seems like the drought is over and I hope you guys get your ponds filled this fall!

Glad to hear you guys are getting filled up! Hopefully one of these days I can join you. Lol! I made it back to the sediment pond yesterday to check things out and it didn't even come close to filling up and flowing into the main pond.
