    Fake news. But I hear some folks are reporting flying pigs.

    This is almost as fun as watching your income tax getting prepared. The weather guy is getting hoarse, he’s been on camera so long. So far rain rates in west Tulsa 5.9in/hr...

    Lotsa folks had to put in their dentures and put on their bras just in case. Luckily we only caught the south tail of this latest rodeo.

    Round two at the moment, had a confirmed tornado over TIA. No telling how much rain overnight, my gauge overflowed before midnight.

    The wheat is looking real good in North Texas this year. The problem is there's been so much rain the fields may be too soft to bring it in.

    This year may set a new record for Prevent Plant.

    Discharging 175,000 CFS
    In aviation terms, that about 4.7 Billion GPH

    Going to be lots of flooding in the area - especially downstream of Keystone Dam on the Arkansas River. Places like Tulsa, Jenks, Sandsprings, Sapulpa, Skiatook, Muskogee, and many more unfortunately.

    Won't be many people out on the lakes this Memorial Day Weekend.

    SteveE I bet that would make a nice smooth place to land when the water is low.

    Here in the south Mississippi delta we are completely flooded and have been for 3 months. Built a levee around my house and getting in and out on a tractor as it’s too deep for my pickup. I’ve been farming for 35 years and have never seen anything like it. I’ll be 100% prevented planting this year.

    My corn is up and looks good but not sure if I'll get the soybeans in before the June 15th planting deadline. Water sitting everywhere but I have installed a lot more drain tile in recent years so that is helping. Probably not doing downstream any good though. Less than a month ago I was kidding with some friends that we should buy lots of corn on the Chicago Board of Trade. As of today that would have been a good move and might still be.

    Crazy! Here in South Florida, my lawn is dying for lack of water and this is allegedly the rainy season.
