racing the storm

So the weather channel online was predicting a storm for this afternoon and we decided to try to run the tiller back through the cornfield ahead of the rain.  Dad shows up after breakfast and it is thundering but no rain.  He begins tilling and the weather is getting darker and darker and the thunder continues.  Pretty soon we are hurrying to get done before the rain comes.  Here is a picture finishing the last pass.
And heading for the shed.
And then a few minutes later there was this.

And this.
I am sure that we had an inch of rain and a couple rounds of tiny hail.  We tucked the truck in the shed and waited out the storm.  Glad to have the tilling done.  Now as soon as it dries out a little the sweet corn goes in!
