Cautiously Optimistic - Rain!!!

In the 5 day forecast that is.  This is the wettest forecast I have seen for 8 months or so for the state of Iowa.  2 to 3 inches somewhere in the state.  Droughts are not defined by one missed rain event, neither are they broken by one good rain event.  However, I'm "cautiously optimistic" about this forecast.  I was planting oats yesterday, the dust was flying, and I'm not sure if all the seed was placed in moist ground.  The rain will take care of that.  It was much dryer that I first thought.

Will the rain come? And will it affect the market?  We shall see.

Take care.

Yes, looks like a good junk of the corn belt will get rain.  Maybe a start of a "normal rain" growing season. http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/qpf/p168i.gif

Chances of rain for the next few days in
our part of KS.....then SNOW and freezing
Temps.

Had a visit on time with a nws forecaster.
I under that if you forecast rain, and
You get .01 of rain, your forecast is a success.

Just what the markets need now, a rain

Both...one isn't worth much without the other.

Of. .75 thru Tuesday.

Nice....but really not much help. We're just
Limping along
