15 Jun Jada: Dodging Storms
For the past few days Hoffman Harvesting has been dodging storms in the Colby area. It has kept us confused if it’s time to play or work. Last night as I was heading out to the field with supper it sprinkled the whole way out. Then I arrived to our field to discover our combines were still cutting. No substantial rain for us. We did receive a sprinkle later in the evening which kept us from getting in the field early today. The guys got ready for harvest, went swimming, then it was back to the field for an evening harvest. The wheat got tough early and now I hear raindrops falling on our camper as I type this. The weather may have actually caught up with us. . . . I don’t think we dodged this storm.
For the first time, I have been able to capture a picture of the Barnett’s. They are camera shy so it took some sneaky camera work and Leon distracting them with conversation.
