Farmers seem to be doing well

 Went for a drive from kalgoorlie to esperance today for work . Crops seem to be doing well. Hopefully they will get some bumper crops. The wheat is growing nicely and the cannola crops seem to be doing well.

 most of the dams i saw roadside were full with loads of water sitting around so i guessing the ground would be saturated . as long as the rain stops when the farmers dont need it im guessing cbh will need to build bigger holding pens for the grain on its way

To put the water situation

Sat, 2018-08-18 09:38

To put the water situation into perspective, there is 45% more water this year than last year, and its only half way through August....

Strange world at the moment, a few years back the east coast got inundated with water and the west was dry as a bone, this year it seems to have reversed.

 went to esperance again

 went to esperance again saturday . still plenty of water sitting around so im guessing the ground would be waterlogged. the crops are going great . 

would be good to see some of the rain hitting the other states where its needed. certainly wouldnt want to be a farmer these days with the weather doing what its doing. years ago you could just about guaranteed to get rain when needed. certainly hit and miss now
