The irony wasn’t lost on farmers as they filed into the Ackley Recreation Club meeting room in Ackley on Monday morning. They were there for a drought meeting, but were comparing their water gauges from over the weekend.
Friday, some said, brought an inch or a little more of rain. Monday morning some saw almost two inches. All of them said they need more, which they got during the middle of the week. But it still may not be enough - certainly not for this growing season, which is basically over.
