I've seen hundreds of acres of field corn flattened by hail.

the only reason I don't see my sweet corn knocked down - is that I don't plant any..

field corn down by the acre after the latest storm.

majority of sweet corn (in our area) has already been picked.
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

My neighbor's sweet corn plantings live in gusty winds to 30 mph.
No knockdowns yet.

Bil:
I agree with your assessment.
And hope you stay out of harm's way.
Weather will only be getting more violent in the years to come.
