Rainy Day

I went to Shipman today to load up some computer software.  The software shall remain nameless, however it took much longer than it should have. 

I passed some corn just coming out of the ground.  Last night's rain made it look very good.  We had a gentle rain that dropped from 1/4 inch to may 3/4 inch.  Perfect for the corn that is planted and not so much to slow down anyone in a hurry. 

I was noticing yesterday that the people who were done planting corn appeared to be very relaxed.  Those still working seemed to be in a hurry, but some patient farmers are still going slow.  The problem with having all your corn planted in a week to 10 days is that your whole crop is subject to the same weather stresses.
