Rain, Rain, Where the Heck Did You Go?

Well TS Lee was supposed to be a rain event for the southeastern peanut belt and to some extent it was. Still, in the Georgia belt there were few significant accumulations beltwide. That said many locations got about an inch which was well received and appreciated.

Temperatures are moderating and if they don't get too cool so as to shut down plant development and if we could get a bit more rain pretty soon then that would be a help.

One concern is the approach of Katia and the northward turn. This could give us a a repeat of Irene sucking all the moisture out of the atmosphere which would not be good.

We are still hoping for a miracle but if something does not happen really soon this crop is really in trouble and it will be worse than previously predicted.
