Great forecast!

Saturday, May 13, 2017

We are loving the weather forecast!  Looks like we’re in for a streak of warm and dry days!  And the baby corn and soybeans (the ones that survived the flooding) are loving that too.

The next several days are looking great! Maybe we can begin inching in on the replanting…

Had a late night last night.  Pat and I drove over to St. Louis for a Cardinals’ game.  We were guests of the Nat’l FFA organization, and we were fortunate enough to be hosted in the Monsanto suite.  It was a neat time.  We met a young farmer and his wife (@rmellenc on Twitter), some people who work at Monsanto, and  some folks with national farm organizations.

We enjoyed everything about the evening…except the final score of the game… the Cubs won 3-2.  Still, it was fun to be there, and the weather was perfect!

There was some excitement for Cards’ fans with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th, as an error allowed Wong to reach 1st base, and the 2nd run to score… but the game ended before another run could come across the plate.

It was a long 3 hours home, but we made it across Illinois on US 50, with very light traffic!
