We had another storm blow through at noon. I met it at Interstate 71. It turned pitch black, knocked down some more trees and wires and more people lost power. It wasn't as bad as the 70-80 MPH wind we had recently. Lots of people got hail and I have not checked for hail damage yet.
I did get into some fields in Preble and Butler County and the crop was sad. Most of the corn I saw won't make 50 bushels and 20 would be closer on most of it. The beans look encouraging but I don't think they are as good as everyone seems to think they are. I think a lot of farmers are searching for hope and I don't blame them.
Hillsboro may have gotten near 3 inches but most got a half inch or more. It is always interesting to receive Bill Northcutt's rain report and especially in this drought.
I have a lot more fields to walk and a lot more farmers to interview on their corn refuge so I am pretty tired tonight.
