We had a big storm last night. I was hoping it would stay west of here but it moved right over on top of us. I dumped 1 inch out of one rain gauge and 2 out of another.
The creeks are full, the lowland has water standing. Maybe not as bad as Illinois but too much for us! It looks like a lake from Martinsville to Blanchester again.
We were just getting into harvest real well. Now we are stopped again. I hear this same situation all over the country.
Did you see where a farmer tried to pull his combine out of the mud with the grain cart behind the tractor? Never do that! You have to take the time to hook the combine to the tractor directly. He pulled the axel right out of the grain cart and split it in half.
Lots of good machinery is being destroyed in this challenging harvest.
We are trying to keep everything in one piece.
