The in between stages...

The impending flood has been weighing heavily on our minds. Each day we check the graphs, check the fields, check the forecast, check the fields.

In the short time between the last post and today the field has flooded... and even since last night when I took these pictures, its flooded more.

 Its really unfortunate because with the impending floods, we didn't fertilize any of the corn.  Judging on how fast its growing this year, it could have been, and with God's grace will be, a great corn crop.

Hoag just walked in shaking his head.  Apparently one foot made all the difference.  The center field is almost completely flooded, south field has standing water and the north field has standing water.   More pictures to follow... along with more prayers.
