Parthenon valley green up and fresh hay bales.

Rains finally came to the Little Buffalo valley after about 45 hot dry days (no rain); I think a record for this part of Arkansas. The grasses were parched and dry by August 8th,  when finally we got much need rains. Maybe 4 inches fell over a period of a week and cooler weather has finally set in. In Murray Valley, the lows at night have been in the upper 50’s to around 60; with temperatures jumping back up to the upper 80s to about 90 during the day. With the cooler and wetter weather the hay did come back  a bit and it appears a cutting occurred this past week.
