I am thinking that there are worse things besides NO rain. I drove through New Boston yesterday, and looked at several fields there... The hail DESTROYED hundreds of acres of corn and soybeans. The corn there is still standing, but the leaves are totally shredded, and hang limp on the stalks. It looks horrible, and is very sad. The soybeans are only 6 or 8 inches high, and were just pounded into the ground by the hail in that area. The corn MAY come back, with severely decreased yields, but the soybeans are a total loss. If I were those farmers, I would be replanting those beans.
My northern-most field is a couple miles west of the New Boston area, and was untouched by the hail. I have soybeans planted there, and it looks like it even got a little bit of rain.
No matter how bad things LOOK, they could ALWAYS be worse.
