Super dry here in southern mn. Doesn't matter with a couple feet of frost in the ground, but its dry.
Frankly if we get enough rain to get over the drought, we won't get a crop planted. Our clay soil doesn't let the water perk down, so we are pretty much destined to suffer from drought or flood this summer, there just isn't time to get enough water into the subsoil to make things right.
Check the weatherguesser, Paul Douglas, in today's Strib.....says the winter snows might end the MN drouth! (?) 100 inches of snow makes about 10 inches water......how much will soak in through our frozen ground, and how much run off? We need more than 10 inches to recharge subsoil and topsoil. MPLS averages about 55 inches snow per winter. Either way, it's nothing we can influence, so we'll have to worry about stuff that we can impact.

I happened to see the Trib in a Subway this week and saw that comment of his. Sure doesn't relate to my location!
Yea, a rainy Late March or April and it won't matter, and nothing to do about it. As dry as its been the 2012 crop sure was good here, and the 2011 crop was ok. Don't know what they lived on both falls, but turned out good, so see what this year brings.
