A Lament

Rain, Rain go away.
Come again another day.

Here in good ol' Iowa it has been raining for over 24 hours straight and the soil was saturated before it started to rain so all of the creeks, streams, and rivers are on the rise. They are sandbagging in several local communities and some schools don't have classes today because of the flooding. As luck would have it, I live on a ridge and I don't have to worry about flooding but I have many friends who do live in flood prone areas. One currently has water over their road so no one can get in or out of their place. That should make it interesting getting the milk truck in and out today.

With the way the soil conditions are here, it looks like it will be the first week of May before I will be able to get into the fields. That is the way it goes.

Grace and Peace!
