The rainy spring is keeping farmers out of their fields. The big downpour today added to their woes. Many fields are flooded including the one pictured on top on Presbyterian Road in the town of Ridgeway.

This pipe runs under the road and directs water to the north side.

This is a picture of the same flooded field along Presbyterian Road. This picture was taken at about 8:15 p.m. today.

Earlier in the day, during the peak of the downpour, I stopped along Ridge Road and got this picture. This is on the western end of Albion, looking south from the Ridge.
