Just looking at some weather models, and this one is pumping out a huge amount of precip across IL and other parts of the midwest. Going ot be some soggy planting conditions...more rain in the extended too...and not much warm air to speak of, especially on the north end (like here in Wisconsin)... Precip accumulation the next 84 hours...

Morning Buckley : No rain here ---------- yet , looked at the radar at 3 am and it looks like your hoging it all , lol
BTW you must be close to the Champaign -- Danville area ?
Need the wind to lay OR change directions -- ( from the South to the North ) so I can finish the 60 acres I didn't do last fall .
Have a good one

Nice pic of your weather model Frank, copious amounts of rain headed for the heart of the I states. I have 32* at 7AM (cia). We are having very little sunshine here too. I took a walk yesterday and checked my tile outlets, one with about 2 miles of tile, was running at a rate of 2 gal a minute, the other shorter one about 1 cup a minute. That is a start.
The only thing planted around here where some oats the other week and some tomatoes in the greenhouse.
