The season starts june 1st, but usually there aren't any till July. Yep we are getting an early start.
I bought a 6500 electric start generator this year. I figured that would keep all the storms from hitting here at least.
This one looks like it will miss you, or you will get the outside edge of it. I think we'll get some good rain from it. We have only had 4" of rain since the end of January and we usually get about 8" per month up till now so it's real dry. The rain is definately welcome here.
