many others did across the Midwest. We finally have a dry planting window longer than we have had all spring. My Spatial Rainfall Consulting totals showed .62 inch here last week, 1.18 one mile away and 2.9 inches 10 miles away. Some guys got 5 inches around Bowersville Wednesday night in that big storm we drove through. There was a tiny bit of hail in that one so it was on the border of being dangerous.
The workers at the ag suppliers are working overtime again this weekend like in 2011 and last year. In 2012, everything was planted.
I like to go to a small Memorial Day service to remember our fallen, especially soldiers who give everything for our freedom. I also like to pray over my family gravesites and just talk awhile.
I actually got some bush hogging done this weekend. I could mow parts of my CRP because I have thistle and poison hemlock outbreaks. You can mow CRP before July 20 in Ohio if you have noxious weeds. This mile stretch of SR 28 is mowed thanks to me and Josh Parker and it is the only mowed roadside around.
LuAnn's brother Tom arrived safely with his son Zach from Arizona. They were stopped for hours on 70 west of Indy yesterday because of a fatal pile up but they got here safe. Tom is a miraculous survivor of brain cancer this winter. Many of you and Café readers prayed for him this winter. Thank you.
Oliver Durand is stopping by this morning from Vermont. We are all going to our little Oliver store, McHenry Equipment in Pleasant Plain, Ohio. I don't think much work is going to get done this week!
