Here in South podunk Country we had a very heavy downpour of Starshine followed this morning with another dosing of Sunshine. Near as I can measure about an inch and a half of both. 3 inch total and counting.

I got an ECI type storm....without the 30 drops. 1 mile west of all my farms some got 1/2" It is so dry, you couldn't even tell it had rianed on the 1/2" stuff...never penetrated the leaf canopy....now we're back toward 100 degree.
Have some neighbors who are fantasizing about their potential corn yields amid the heat and dryness. Since they're too lazy for an actual field sampling I sampled it for them.....and when they started with the Skittle Unicorn stuff....I pulled out the ears, tossed them down....and said, " Oh you mean that field where I picked these?" lmfao....silence.
As Simpson would say, there is a big old Oh F^%$ Me Moment on the Horizon for wishful thinkers,. and it get s better...the folks at Consolidated told me the corn was made already since it had filled the ear and was still milk to soft dough stage with plants dying.
W T F?> The Hilarity continues.

Around an inch here last night with plenty of wind. The crop took it pretty good. There is some corn leaning and even blow over in a few spots but nothing real significant. This makes almost 4" in the last 10 days. Not complaining. Things look real good.

Not complaining.....rubbing it in our face would be a better description. I think Kenny is kidding us....when I called him this morning, his wife said something about getting 4" last night. Time to fess up Ken.
