More rain last night. There is a lot of flooding, fields, roads and the farmers are in the midst of some bad times due to all this rain. The Mississippi River is also heading towards flood stage or above, so those with fields inside the levee that have been planted are going to be a total loss too.

Hubby drove down to the farm that he manages this morning, and couldn't even get to the shop because the roads were flooded, as were the fields, planted and as yet unplanted. Things are looking serious as hell down here.

This is just our road after the 2+ inches of rain overnight and most of it has drained down. The farm got between 4 and 5 inches of rain last night.
