RUSH, Ky. (WSAZ) -- It's rained so much in the last few weeks, farmer David Horn has become too familiar with the inside of his barn and work shed.
"I'm doing maintenance and chores," Horn said. "It's just too wet."
Some parts of Kentucky have seen upward of 10 inches of rain the last several weeks -- rain that has left fields soaked.
"The ground is saturated with water," Horn says. "It's just soft like a sponge."

A more than 70-acre homestead has been in Bowling's family since the 1890s. On Tuesday, just like a lot of people's property in our region, the garden was all but under water.
"We've already lost the window for early cold crops," Bowling says. "Even though it's cool now, the time to plant that is early March, and we never could get in here and till this up."
