We were awakened this morning, not by the alarm clock, but by the booming sounds of thunder. It brought additional rain to add to the total from Saturday and Sunday. So far in this rain event, we’ve received 3.8″(97mm). Before the weekend, we were getting dry again, and the corn was ‘rolling’ (some people call it ‘pineapple’ corn) in the heat of the afternoons. But now, we are hoping for a dry week or ten days… the wheat crop is nearly ready, and will likely be fully ripe and mature by the time the soils dry again. Before the rainy weekend, we had planned to begin wheat harvest on Tuesday.
We will pray for a stretch of dry days to get the wheat crop cut.
Still, we are grateful for the rain, and we will see what the coming days bring us…
Have a good week.
