Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Wild weather, youth rodeos, ranch rodeos, ranch broncs, horse shows and bull riding
There’s been some wild storms around the area which included hail, wind, tornados, and even rain. It remains very dry where I’m at, but the rains are moving closer so there is hope. I know some folks are getting too much rain and can’t get anything done because of water standing in hayfields. A happy medium would be nice.
