There are a lot of farmers smiling in the valley today. With corn and other crops just coming up, our rain was just what they needed. Once the plants get going, there's plenty of sub-soil moisture to keep them going. It's not only the hot and dry weather that's been tough on the plants.

Brandan Kub – Kindred Farmer: “Some of the sandier ground, the dirt is blowing and setting that corn back just because it's getting sand blasted every day the wind blows.”

Kub says another inch to inch and a half of rain would be welcome.
