Finally, a spring rain (and snowstorm) has moved into the Dakotas, Wyoming and eastern MT. Where I live, we are always one day away from a drought and that was especially true this year. With wildland fires already sprouting up, it is destined to be a long summer. But with the current storm, farmers and ranchers are walking around with a spring in their step, with renewed hopefulness for a good year. If it wasn't for hope we would have quit this business a long time ago.

Enjoy the rains! May showers bring -- May flowers?
