La Niña sucks. There’s no question, just a factual statement.

Pretty tired of all the wind. Drought is one thing, we are always on the edge of it anyways here but the constant wind just wears a guy down. It’s to the point that more than just the BTOs are saying “20-30mph wind is no big deal to spray in, just add more drift agent and roll, clock’s ticking.” Which in turn ticks guys off that aren’t spraying in those winds.

It is all relative. In general it sucks for north America. It is pretty good for Australian farmers, especially the east coast.

At some point, it will change and you will get a El Nina, making you more likely to be wet, and Australia dry.

I appreciate the perspective. We complain when we hit a dry slot 2-4yrs here in the western high plains, you deal with it for a lot longer stretch. Seems this time it’s worse than 2012 or 2002 but I think it’s mainly because the wind just doesn’t stop.
