Missouri has had 3 years of MASSIVE rainfalls. It would rain for 2-3 days straight then dry up for 2-3 days, then rain all over again. Crops were planted almost a month late last year b/c farmers are tired of planting and then re-planting. This year, corn has been planted on the farm I hunt and looks like they'll have to re-seed b/c it's good fertle bottom ground but the rain just keeps coming. We had to cut hay last year all the way in mid August!!! Typically we cut and bail it in early July and sometimes even late June. Sounds crazy but I'm ready for a DROUGHT!
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
