Fog

Monday, August 19, 2013

There is a general haze in the air this morning, and the valleys around the area are thick with fog.  It certainly feels like a September morning out there this morning, cool and damp.  August has given us, for the most part, cooler and pleasant days… and not much rain.  A little rain would be welcome.

It's hazy everywhere this morning, but in the valleys, the fog is thick.  Watch out, school bus drivers!

There is an old saying:  “The number of fogs in August will be the number of big snows in January”.  Well, it’s 5 so far.  We will see if this old saying holds true.

The agenda for today holds some bookkeeping, work on the ’14 crop budget and cash flow, and bush-hogging.  (Yes, on this farm ‘bush-hog’ is also a verb).  This trip over with the bush-hog should be the final one before harvest.  After harvest, we also like to run the bush-hog one pass around the perimeter of most fields to take down any weeds and clear the view for the winter.

Have a good week.
