Rain again

Saturday, September 8, 2012

A hard-driving rain drove us from the corn field last night.  We were just a few acres from finishing the Holscher farm, when the spectacular lightning show got our attention.  A quick check on the phone to view the radar, showed a band of red coming our way.  So, we detached the corn head from the combine, and took all the trucks and machines and headed home.  Along the way, about 2 miles from the field, the big drops began to splash the windshield of the combine, and I needed the wiper all the way home.  Before pulling into the shed, I could see the rain going sideways!  It continued past midnight, and we got another 1.66″ (42 mm).

It’s sunny today, a good day to run the dryer for yesterday’s harvest.

I’m going to say something I haven’t said in a long time.  I hope it doesn’t rain for a while!

I believe the drought is over.
