Flooded Cornfields

Duration: 00:58

Driving South on the interstate I was impressed at just how flooded the cornfields were. I grabbed my camera and started filming. The brown stuff on top of the water is the remnants of corn stocks and other plant materials that got pushed near the road by the flow of water.

I don't want to even think about how the damage to all of Iowa's cornfields is going to translate into higher food and ethanol prices. The term "Knee high by July" is not meant to describe the height of water in the fields. (via gene5335 on YouTube)
