Here in the heartland, farmers are getting word from their insurance companies that the corn is a total loss. Disk the fields.
Farmers here are just mowing them over to save fuel.
Early this morning, it rained. Some of the residents at my facility got up at the sound of the thunder and looked outside. Some of them had tears in their eyes.
While making rounds I asked what was wrong. I was told that corn is lost, but we might be able to save the beans. The look in some of the old farmers eyes I will carry with me for life. Farmers live an intense life, it turns out.
The MSM will not pick this up for awhile, but those folk here in the basement might want to google just what a failed corn crop will do to all kinds of prices.
I have heard nothing from DC.
Once again, I have to ask my President, why have you not readied the nation for what is coming?
Too busy campaigning?
