The constant rain over the last few days put a damper on some farmers' plans.

Farmers said they were hoping that the coming week will bring dryer conditions. 

"Rains been nice, it has been nice, but it's been two weeks you know of kind of raining condition," said farmer Mark Daniel. "So it will be it will help the crop and help business in general to get some business in here for sure. All the farmers are wanting dry weather for peanuts and cotton and everything right now." 

Nonetheless, it was a good season for most of the crops.
