Rest assured, however, that farmers will not jump the gun to get into the fields before the conditions are right. Going into the fields while the ground is still wet could cause compaction of the soil (the soil will pack down). Compaction can never be completely reversed, so the soil forms a dense layer, and roots cannot push through it. Also, a dense layer hinders soil drainage. Basically, compaction is bad news.
So, until the rain stops falling, we'll find other things to work on. Fortunately, there are always jobs to do! :)
