KELSEY LITCHFIELD UPDATES

Since June 29th, our area has received about 7 inches of rain; however, we are still in a moderate drought. Crops are in the reproductive stage. Corn height in fields is all over the place.

We received .3 inch of rain over the weekend – it was a welcomed rain but not nearly enough to make a dent in the drought.

Rain in the forecast this past weekend got our hopes up, but Mother Nature let us down again. Rain gauge registered less than tenth of an inch. Hoping it rains soon.
