And I feel a little disgusted for my fascination. I watched an interview with their friend Melanie Gibb, it's on YouTube. It appears that these two were looking for some justification to bang each other through twisting and perverting the conservative constraints of their religion and got extremely carried away.

So you may remember my story about the company spraying the wrong stuff on my corn which killed over 400 acres of it. That left me with another 800 or so acres. Mother nature looked down on my corn crop, which was sure to be a good one, and said [expletive] you. All of it, all of it, is flat after today's storm. I give up.

That really sucks, IMA. Any chance some of it will bounce back?

It's too late in the season. If this happened a month ago maybe, but the corn is all pollinated and filling ears. Some of it has already started to turn on the bottom of the plant. We can probably still get some of it with a reel on our corn head, but that basically ruins the combine because it will have a lot of dirt and mud in it. I think for insurance to cover we will have to make an effort to get as much as we can. That was how it was the last time this happened, which was in 2008. That year was not nearly as bad as this. Basically this makes for a nightmare harvest. We probably had 6 weeks of corn harvest as it was. This easily doubles that.

That's insane that such a huge area was hit. It was pretty spotty here. Our farm, couple neighbors, and then it look like the storm let up a bit and then there is some crop damage in the center part of the county. Nothing like up in Iowa though. Going to be a long harvest for a lot of us.
