Blaithin's Avatar Jul 4, 2020 | 18:31 2 Trying to keep up on Twitter. Not sure if they’re at 3, 4 or more tornadoes in the SE!

Heard bad hail as well. Hopefully that isn’t very wide spread 🤞🏻 Reply With Quote
Jul 4, 2020 | 18:36 3 Radar shows purple and red at Assiniboia again. I can’t see anything on Environment Canada in the SE. Reply With Quote

Jul 4, 2020 | 20:30 5 Replay of last night? Maybe thunder at 10:30 - maybe not. 😂 Reply With Quote
Blaithin's Avatar Jul 4, 2020 | 20:34 6 Had a storm through here around 3. Sounds like it hit around Innisfail fairly hard. There was pea hail and driving rain here, 1/2” in 15 minutes, but doesn’t look to have done too much damage to the crops.

Another one to the North wiped out around Halkirk. Reply With Quote

This was Assiniboia yesterday aft noon ... looks like it’s winter . Huge hail up to golf ball size. Massive flooding in basements. Lots of acres gone! Tornado touched down 12 miles west of Lafleche. We are at our seasonal spot at Thomson Lake 4 miles north of Lafleche, all that was here was heavy rain.
We are a fair bit east of Assiniboia, thankfully we got nothing. Brother sent me a text last saying “massive rain” at 11:30, haven’t heard the amount yet.
We’ve had 4 inches in a wk so little scared what this massive means? Reply With Quote
Jul 5, 2020 | 08:32 10 Ghetto Central will probably be ok for 7-10 days but sooner or later will need another drink.

Maybe I don't want to spend $40K on fungicides this year.

See wiseguy....I'm both lazy AND cheap! Reply With Quote

Durum is done fully headed head out and halfway up my shin, canola very unlikely to make it for a large portion can only see that anything is planted in the rows now, lentils 10 to 20bpa if lucky i predict.

    Jul 5, 2020 | 10:05 13 At the very least I hope I get enough money from this crop to cover salaries and expense.....because I'm dumb enough to do it again. I have low expectations, better to be pleasantly surprised than disappointed.

    Notice I said cover salaries because I don't like working for myself for nothing either(wiseguy...!). "Profit" might be thin this year but i don't consider the salaries paid as "profit". Reply With Quote
