    5/23 weather thread?

    I see some tornado hunters are working their way toward eastern nebraska/western IA. Is there any chance any of that rain gets anywhere close to central IA?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Very minimal chance.

    Our lawn care guy left a note recommending that we water. I'd rather have the rain.

    Crops will be gone in a week or so with no rain and if the wind continues to blow like today.

    Umm... no. Young crop does not need much growing water. Beans that are not emerged - on the other hand could see some emergence problems.

    Not saying we couldn't use a drink though.

    I should have implied in areas but I help my uncles in the field and todays wind along with root growth due to the lack of rain can damage corn.

    There must be some moisture, the beans are emerging and growing well. Some planted a week ago are out of the ground so that is a good sign. Hay mowed a week ago is coming back well also, so its not time to panic yet. But yes we do need rain.
