  10 inches of rain in the last 10 days with more predicted plus snow. I think we are somewhere around 40 inches of moisture for the year a far cry from our 23 to 24 inches. Unless things change there will not be any harvest for at least till later in the month with at least 95% of a really good crop left standing. Some of this crop will not get harvested until it freezes and that is only if it does not snow first to insulate the ground. Oh well put another pot of coffee on and sit back and wait we will get it done sometime, we always do.

  12 inches of rain 2-3 weeks ago almost 5 inches of rain the last week water standing all over can't even get started with corn or beans can't even finish chopping silage corn stalks are weak and breaking of below the ear and beans if they don't dry down soon will start to rot.
