Dry weather gives farmers edge

Farmers have had optimum weather recently for gathering fall hay like Ed Shuecraft, pictured here, or harvesting double-crop soybeans.

While the mild, dry weather has been great for getting farmers ahead of the game, it could wreak havoc soon if ponds get too low for livestock.

Most of the area, however, is simply enjoying the warmer than normal fall. According to one weather report, this was warmest halloween since 1950.
