I have noticed that some post on his board do not have Email I am trying to post this without filling in the Email space. To See what happens. Hope you folks down south do not get a lotta storm damage and that you folks up north don't get snowed or iced in. It is hard for me to imagine snow already. but then I remember when I lived in Spokane Wa. The first snow of the season up in the Mountains was around Aug. while the last of the seaseon was around July Good night and take care all.

I think I heard about there being a couple of inches on Mt. Spokane last week, but I have never heard of there being any up there in August. And it is the highest mountain right around here. But I have seen 6 inches of snow on Halloween (in about 1971, or so) right outside the Spokane city limits.

Hope we get some decent moisture this Fall and Winter. It has been pretty dry. The county has posted a total outdoor burning ban and advertised that the fine for violation of the ban will be $1000. It should end soon as we are finally getting some rains.

I remember that. We felt kind of left out because we didn't get any, only about 35 miles away. You never can tell what the weather will do. One time we had a tornado that twisted down 27 large pine trees on our property. We never saw the tornado, only the damage afterwards. Sure glad it missed our home site--we had a mobile home at the time and I am sure it would have been knocked off its blocks, or worse.

Still, I think this area is a great place to live and I hope to live here the rest of my life.

I remember those tornados. I was in the Hillyard area drinking way to much beer while doing a bit of community service. Ahhh the good old days. (?)

Hi Hal I may have exagerated just a tad bit about the snow in the mountains,although it did seem like around The bigger Mts. in central Wa. it snowed a lot more. I was there and do remember the snow on Halloween. A fellow in Wenatchee,told me of one time on the Fourth of July he was hiking and got caught in a freak snowstorm. We moved back to Mo. aroun 79 just before Mt St Helens made the news.Spokane was a nice place,hope it still is.

Worked like a champ Sid.

Here's yer bermuda info.


Bermuda grass is a tropical and subtropical species. It grows best where mean daily temperatures are above 24 C (75F). Temperatures of -2 to -3C (28.4 - 26F) usually kill leaves and stems but rhizomes survive and regrow in the spring (Hanna).

Thanks Burrhead. I have been thinking of trying some here in SW Mo. Sound like it would be good for summer pasture.

Bermuda is real good if you can throw about 100-125 lbs per acre of nitrogen on it.

It'll choke out a lot of weeds and is high protein. If ye fertilize it like that it runs neck and neck with bahai or fescue on tonnage and is higher feed values and protein.

If ye throw 1/3 or so of white clover seed in with it the clover will give it a lot of the nitrogen

Bermuda is about all anybody has for hay around here. It spreads pretty quick. I was hogging a field yesterday and hit a thick patch of it. Bout stopped a 52hp tractor with a 6ft bushhog.

It'll dang sho do it.

Mine stayed flooded over a week last year and then a few days this year so I gotta pile of weeds in mine.

If ye can keep that bermuda mowed and baled about ever 6 weeks it'll crowd johnson grass out in our climate
