Corn Not up?

I worked in the Staunton area for the first time this spring.  Lots of corn is planted, but emergence is spotty especially on corn planted April 12 and 13.  Much like last year, corn planted right before a big rain does not look great.  I did some digging for or with 3 customers.  The corn is germinated and alive.  It looks like it will just take some patience.  A bit of corn was planted the last week of March.  It is 4 to 5 leaf and looks OK.  It was pale this morning, but warm sunshine seemed to perk it up by afternoon.  One field we found one annual white grub.
