Spotty here, in Iowa

It sure is spotty here in Iowa as to how the harvest is going.  Southern Iowa is still muddy from this past week's rain....plus a lot of the crops are still green from being planted so late.   We are going to get a killing frost tomorrow night...so that will be the end of the growing season all across Iowa.

I saw some hay on the ground trying to dry between Winterset and Creston (SW Iowa) and a lot of the pastures are pretty well grazed down.

Central Iowa has most of the beans done and just starting on corn...no anhydrous on yet....too warm in the ground.

I was over in the Cedar Rapids area last weekend with the marching band, and most of the crop hasn't been touched there....as of last weekend.

I guess, short answer, drive 20 miles and you will see a whole different picture.

SON OF A BITCH!!! I had a whole long post typed talking about weather and how we don't put on NH3 in the fall. I then thought I would use a new tool, highlighted what I had typed, click color, cliched green and the whole freakin post disapperaed.

 

Oh well, live and learn. I will figure out the tool eventually. Thought I would try one with every post. But still---I type so DAMN slow, SON OF A BITCH!!!

Rut Roh!

Don't feel bad....I did that a couple of times too.   Anymore, I just cut and paste my own post, before getting fancy with the toys....just in case I screw something up....then I just have to paste it back where it was.

Crystal clear here this morning. They said we would get 3-5inches of rain. Got a little over an inch. Should be able to get back at it in a couple of days. Everybody's beans are ready now, things will go quick if we get the weather. 37 degrees here this morning, winter snow is not far behind.

Snowing like Crazy here, this morning!

It is snowing like crazy....big flakes....right now in Winterset....YUK!

We have had more than half an inch of snow and the ground is white!

Today is the first day of the Covered Bridge Festival and it looks like a scene from Courier & Ives around here.  We are all going to be busy with marching bands, Boy Scouts doing their things, and daughter's High School Choir is singing.   If I see algore anywhere around, I will pitch a snowball at him!

If this link works.....this is what it looks like, right now....live, at the Winterset Courthouse Square....snow and all.
