Focus On The Farmers

It’s pouring in Columbus right now, and the weather forecast is for more of the same — all day, and for that matter all week.

As I sat on my back porch listening to the rain pound the roof this morning, the phrase that popped into my head was: “It’s good for the farmers.” When we were kids, that was Mom’s inevitable response to a rainy summer day. Forlorn kids would be staring out the window, saddened by the fact that a precious day of summer vacation would be lost to thunderstorms, but Mom would try to put a happy spin on the showers. She was a master of the power of positive thinking In the days before spin even had a name.

Here’s to you, Ohio farmers! Let’s hope the rains produce a bumper crop this year.

  1. I keep saying that of late as well. Considering Connecticut has been getting its share of rain. Like this morning and probably again later.. May I say Happy Father’s day to you!!

  2. Hate to put a “damper” on that thought, but the farmers in my area are unable to plant crops and make hay because there has been so much rain. It may be a terrible year for Ohio farmers.
