Went to Murphysboro for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. It rained on us the whole way. Snowed for about 30 miles coming home. We had 4 inches of rain in the past 48 hrs in Hillsboro. The drive takes us throught the heart of Illinois wheat country in Washington County. Wheat crop looked pretty good although none of it was much beyond just being out of the ground. When we got into Jackson Co. It looked a little spotty probably because of dry weather. Hard to say what will happen with that wheat untill spring. I am not sure how many acres are reported planted, but it seems like alot more than in recent past years.
