At 1:30 this afternoon, the ominous black clouds opened up with a rain. They had been threatening rain for over an hour, and finally they delivered. We were working on the hilly field at the Dunn farm about a mile from home. We removed the corn head from the JD combine, and moved it home. The C-IH combine ‘s corn head folds hydraulically, so it was easy to move it home. We parked them back in storage, to wait for a better day.
Later in the afternoon, the rain let up, so John is back to running the dryer to get the ‘wet’ corn dried down and put into storage. The corn coming in from the field has a pretty good test weight, and it running 18.8 to 20.0%, not bad for early days of corn harvest. Rain is predicted again for tonight/tomorrow.
Looks like we’ll be able to travel to Rising Sun, Indiana tomorrow morning to watch our BIL take his turn carrying the torch for the Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay!
We still have some loads to deliver to GPC at Washington, Indiana. Brandon will check the GPC website to find some appointments for delivery.
The weather forecast for next week is very favorable for #harvest16
Have a nice weekend.
