We received 0.25 inches of rain yesterday. That is the first measurable rain we have received since 6/29/15. We are in a major drought here without grass growing. Our usual hay provider did not have any hay for us this year, and we have been scrambling. We found 5 tons of $10 per bale hay up Highway 20. Today Tom found 10 tons at $10.50 per bale that we will pick up tomorrow. It is supposed to rain tomorrow so we will attempt to put the hay in our hay loft and hay barn between showers. This is somewhat ironic. I am really worried about the livestock of Skagit County, if their owners will be able to get hay for them to feed them through the winter. But at least ours will have enough good quality (but expensive) hay.
