Corn Planting Started

We have heard rumors of corn planting in Illinois.  It is on well drained soils, but even so I question whether or not we are dry enough.  We have been doing some sampling and soils are wet.  I spotted some fields near Edwardsville where Anhydrous was being applied.  Yes in general it is too wet for that too.  If you see vapor, your trench is not closing properly.  Compaction lasts for years in some cases, so heavy loads on wet soils are not a good idea.  Soil Temperatures are surprisingly warm.
