Wettest June on record in NW Ohio

Wettest June on record in NW Ohio

Daryl Bridenbaugh, aka the 4020 Freak

In northwest Ohio we had the wettest June in recorded history.  We had between 12.5 and 14 inches of rain (our annual average rainfall is 33 inches).  About one third of the fields look very good.  About one third have problems and about one third are pretty much beyond hope.  Some fields never were planted and others were killed by flood waters.

These photos were all taken within a few miles of the Bridenbaughs' farm (taken on July 8):
