Morning guys! Yep very dry in these parts - I'm on the Continental Divide near the base of MacDonald Pass outside of Helena. Low snow pack this winter and we're still in an "extreme drought" condition. Doesn't bode well for the fire season. We're anticipating a busy summer - I'm the Assistant Chief with one of the rural fire departments. The ground is already dry when you dig down a foot or so - not a good sign. Hoping for rain, but it seems to be avoiding us. Thanks for the warm welcome.
That's ironic. We have 2 drainage jobs we are waiting on...soil is too wet. Both in heavy clay and we told them we needed it to be dry.
So last week we had an entire week without rain and guess who calls about their drainage jobs?
Umm, yeah...just because we went a week without rain does NOT mean it has dried out. The top inch or two has...barely. I tried spreading some of the clay fill I got last fall and barely managed to not get stuck.
