Jada: Hail Hits Pratt Kansas

Jada: Hail Hits Pratt Kansas

Hail hit Pratt last night. I am glad we were able to get the wheat crop in but I am hoping the hail didn’t do too much damage to the fall crop. We were wishing for rain in the area but it unfortunately came in form we didn’t want.

The prior evening we also had some rain but it missed Ross’s farm and last I heard the hail missed him last night- not the rain.  The previous night, we went out to eat with our customers from Kiowa- the Spicers- and our customers from Pratt- Ross and Jeanie Hoerner. It was fun to have a get together. Nothing describes downtime on harvest like good friends and good food.

We were going to move to Scott City yesterday but decided to wait until today as we had some unfinished business to attend to. I am wishing we would have missed out on the storm…. I have yet to assess if there is any damage to our equipment/ vehicles/ campers. Here are some pictures of the last couple of nights.

    Sorry to hear they had hail in pratt. I was just wondering what you are charging this year to cut wheat, and do you have a minimum number of acres that you need to be able to stop and cut?

      No, we do not have a minimum amount of acres to stop and cut. We see any addition welcomed to our normal scheduled routes- that is if we have time to do it. As you can see we do this year, but every year is different. As for charging, it depends what the going rate is for the area and how the crop is affects that.
