Floods put Weber County farmers in fix

Western Weber County has been called the epicenter of flooding in the state, and farmers and ranchers say they've been in the worst holding pattern of their lives since April. Regardless of any issues with levees and river control, ground water here just won't go away and it will keep many farmers from even beginning to work their ground, likely for another month. At present, no one knows for sure what the exact dollar impact will be. There's no accounting of how many total acres now are underwater. Ogden Standard-Examiner
