Hot temperatures and high humidity moved in the area last week. There were a couple days with hazy sunshine, and for as hot as it was, it was not significant drying conditions. Farmers returned to the fields around here on Wednesday and Thursday. Some ground is still a little on the wet side, but the calendar is starting to work against us as far as getting the corn stuck in the ground. A little chance of rain in the forecast, but maybe we can get through without any or too much precipitation. As we are all busy in the fields and on roadways going from field to field, be safe.
