…AND THE SNOW LAY ON THE COMBINES…

*WHINING DISCLAIMER!  We are not feeling sorry for ourselves, this post is purely : Just Cause.

Our weather was typical SW Kansas Weather this week, which means -anything goes.  Tuesday night we had tornadoes, (The count was over 120 for Kansas) hail -several different bouts of it- an inch of rain and then snow with 40 to 50 mph. winds.  We fared just fine.  My daughters’ In-Laws to the north just a few miles, had 14 inches of snow to contend with.

We are still waiting for a very small bit of late planted milo to dry down.  Again-not whining here-as there are quite a few neighbors who have quite a bit of milo left to cut.

We braved the muddy roads this afternoon (not too smart, I think) to go drain the water out of the bottom of the combine bins.  It’s not often (like almost never) that we have to wade through snow to do this.

Thanksgiving is predicted to have moisture again, with up to 3 inches next Friday.  I vote to move home……….

    Love the photos. They could be from anywhere around here – except for the snow. That will come this weekend.

      Of course, I did take the picture where it had drifted to add a bit more drama. We are grateful to have the moisture! After several years of drought, we can handle a bit of challenge from mud. 😊

    Hang in there! And I think you are entitled to whine if you want to. Beautiful photos, by the way!

    Brings back memories! Seems like every year we shelled at least some corn with snow drifts between the rows. The price you pay for not finishing harvest until January or February!

      I don’t like it. Lol. We don’t have corn, andusually have the Milo done around now. It’s pretty easy to lose a lot of yield. Sure glad we just have a bit left.

        I never would be able to get all their corn by that time of the year. By then it was falling down and I’d be running the snouts down in the snow trying to pick it back up. Kind of nerve racking! I hope you get the last of yours in here soon!

    Kind of nerve wracking? I’d say really nerve wracking!! We will try it again tomorrow.
