July rain welcomed by area farmers

The month of July has been a rainy one. Meteoroglists say Eau Claire got 7.7 inches of rain, and that's seven times the amount we got last July.

Farmers say all that rain has been great for their crops. One farmer said he got a three-week head start on planting. He says the only thing the rain has hindered is the baling of his hay.

Meteorologists say the average amount of rainfall in July is 3.9 inches.

    In this area there is a lot of 1st crop hay not yet harvested. Alfalfa fields are turning yellow. The ground is so soft oats and wheat can't be harvested. ENOUGH RAIN!!!
