Hellish wind, 8/10" but sideways rain must be over an inch, a few small hail. Reply With Quote

Lake was calm as glass when I was trying to pick up the gross hay at about 7 pm. And hellish muggy. And then the clouds built, hellish clouds. And then the wind hit. I hardly got home in time. Hadn’t run so hard to get to the truck to stay dry before! Got some cool pics. If only I was not so 1950’s technically illiterate, I’d share them. The clouds, the lighting. It was intense.

Black poplars down in the yard. More work to do..

ETA. 1.25 inches. Look at my chest high barley, or wait a few days??? Ugh

Jul 31, 2020 | 10:49 33 Wow haven’t seen it hot like this for a long time. Actually have got hay up that had no rain on it. Going to cut greenfeed undersown to alfalfa and brome. Usually wait till oats are dough but going at milk cause weather window could close.

I wonder maybe even worry about canola with this heat. Especially later seeded stuff. Mines been flowering 3 weeks or more and starting to come out. However, lots of later seeded around you can see is getting pushed out faster. I imagine yield potential would be diminished some. Areas with less moisture I assume will see more adverse effects.

Aug 3, 2020 | 20:54 41 We desiccated our peas over the last three nights.

Pretty dry here. The Department of Highways dug-out we get our water from has been down-graded to a Department of Highways slough.

Only they, with their infinite wisdom, would build a dugout on a hill away from any natural water course or alot of potential run-off.

Even dug-outs in the Ghetto are ghetto. Reply With Quote

    Got a couple tenths and some wind. Got another two tenths last night. Funny thing the rain belt south of us and to the north got squat. Reply With Quote
