I talked to a neighbor yesterday who had been to visit relatives in Filer,
Idaho, a few days ago.  They're extremely worried that they won't get their
bean crop planted in time for summer harvest, and can't get equipment into
the fields until they dry out a bit.  Raining now, more rain forecast.
We're only up to about 3 inches for the month, but that's a lot for us.
Blub, blub.  Now I'm worried about the mold popping out on the wooden
spacers under the asphalt roofing.  Margaret
