Sunlight not required

Harvest is in full swing in Clay County, and farmers have been taking advantage of unusually warm and dry conditions this week to try to get in as much of their corn crop as possible. "It's pretty unusual to get a suntan while out in the field in October," said Grant Sorensen. Grant, with his young son, Clayton, riding shotgun, drove the Sorensen family farm's semi to and from the corn field while Grant's dad, Nels Sorensen, cut swathes through the family's cornfield southwest of Vermillion. The combine's bright lights make it possible for the work to continue well after sundown.
