Wet Harvest

While some farmers managed to start the harvest in recent weeks, heavy rain has halted work.

In case you missed it, the state of Iowa has received its fair share of wet weather during the last couple of months.

In September alone, Waterloo was pounded with 13.35 inches of rain -- that's almost 11 inches more than normal. And it's not as though August was especially dry with 6.08 inches of rain compared to the average of 4.27 inches.

Wet Harvest

Harvest equipment stands idle on a rainy morning in a field between Iowa Falls and Alden this week. The constant wet weather has made if difficult for farmers to get their crops out of the field this fall.
