Plants & Wildlife
Buchanan County, IA

Start Date: 9/7/2017 -  
1.26 in of rain since August 1. Grass is turning brown, haven't mowed in about 2 weeks. Supplementing more hay as pastures are growing very slowly. Replaced a portion of our south property fence over the weekend. Ground is dry down as far as the post holes (several feet). Fortunately weather has been cooler with no fire restrictions as of yet. Dry weather expected to continue into next week. Have been enjoying the cooler sunny weather. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Quasqueton 0.4 WSW on 9/7/2017
