Kelly Roberts of Benton, Ill., recently blogged about his corn crop's path to death. He writes:

"Here are some time lapse photos of one of my corn fields showing how we went from one of the best looking corn crops ever to a complete disaster in less than a month.

"Heat index temps have been over 110 this last week and they predict another week of triple digit temps. Soil surface temps are over 130 during the heat of the day.

"This corn was planted on April 13. Rainfall from April 16 to July 1 was 0.75 inches with 0.9 coming on the night of July 1."
