Rain before seven, fine by eleven?

Well, not yesterday when it started to rain at 6.30 am and stayed wet all day. After a good start to harvest at the weekend, work has now stopped as we wait for sunshine to dry out the crops.

On Wednesday evening it started to rain steadily, there was an enormous flash of lightning and we lost our electricity supply in the house and yard for half an hour. Surprisingly, there was no rain two fields away where the combine was working and they harvested until the early hours of the morning.
