We were that way, but I've go a hunch we're going to be in a world of hurt before long. We had two dry weeks of great haying weather, then got half an inch Friday night. Temps have gone up in to the lower 90s, supposed to be that way until the middle of next week, then in to the upper 90s, no rain in the forecast. I went to the dealer to get some bearings yesterday, corn was curled already where there was compaction from mudding corn in on wet ground.

We had a near perfect but very cold spring to get planted. About the day I finished planting, we got a 3 inch downpour in mid May. Ugh.

Got pretty dry after that eventually, in my world pretty dry is a good thing even the corn on my sand was still full color and healthy, pretty dry is where I need to be.

Since then we have been hammered, Iíve had a few tiny local cloudbursts over my farm; 5 miles away people were wailing for some rain to help their dry crops, i was cutting deep ruts to try to spray......

Tired of the rain. It would be nice to see my crop fry away, it would be a nice change of pace from watching it drown again and again and again. Been a very wet 5 years. Roads and river banks are collapsing around here, too wet for too long.

I just canít get away from the dark cloud over my head.

We'd been just like last year in May. I had half my corn in then we got almost 6 inches. Corn came up spotty. It got dry enough just before Memorial day to plant half of what was left, then we got another 2 inches. I managed to mud in the last of it June 1. First week of trying to cut hay it was hot and humid, we got another 1.8, then turned off cool and dry but warmed up. Last July it finally turned off hot and dry after cursing putting up wet hay the last week of June and first half of July, but the hot and dry has set in early this year. I had one wet spot in the corner of a field of silage corn that I was determined to get planted. I got that in last Thursday.

I listen to an Eastern Kentucky radio station online when I'm in the house. They seem to be getting hammered with rain down there the last few days with temps cooler than we have here.
