Jada: Moving in melting temperatures

Jada: Moving in melting temperatures

Today we arrived in Limon, Colorado. Our equipment left early this morning so it didn’t have to sustain a move in the heat of the day. That unfortunately wasn’t the case for our campers. Several things prevented us from leaving early. As a result, we were traveling in the peak of the heat which got up to 113 degrees.

The heat registered on our Fords thermometer during our moving from Colby to Limon

The heat registered on our Ford’s temperature gauge during our move from Colby, Kan. to Limon, Co. Excuse the dirt but high winds in a wheat field make it impossible to keep the interior of your vehicle dust free! : )

We drove slow to prevent any blow outs and let’s just say we were more than happy to arrive in Limon! We may have kissed the ground but the reality of unhooking campers in the heat quickly curbed our happiness. It’s so hot outside, it feels like you are opening the oven to check on food. Thank goodness we had lots of helping hands. Everyone was here to help for once!

Since the elevators are closed today, we plan to get out in the field tomorrow and see if the wheat is ready to harvest. In the meantime, here is a video of some of our field action. Callum is driving combine number 2 which is the main combine featured in this video.

 

What I am digging today (or shall I say Kaidence?)….. Kaidence got something fun from Grandma Hoffman in the mail….. a pair of heels. We get our mail sent to us via general delivery and my mom sometimes puts something fun in with our mail. This makes going to pick up our mail at the Post Office a treat. While these heels were meant for playing dress-up, it didn’t stop Kaidence from going outside with them as she drove her tractor around the campground. Who said a gal can’t get dirty and look pretty while doing it?!

Kaidence get heels in the mail

    Thanks for the video. Loved the idea of putting the Texas flag on combine.
    Kaidence sure looked sweet with her shoes and all dressed up. That was very niceof Grandma to send them. Hope she can see the picture of her.
    It was cool here at 102. today,ha. between Winfield and Arkansas city,ks. north of Ok/Ks state line. Had wind which helped. Farmers done with wheat and working ground. Corn looks good. The maize is coming along. sure could use some water, does not look like will get any this week. Not many irrigate, the ones close to river do,but not many at that. Cotton will be coming on before long. it was started here about 20 years ago and some did not think it would work,BUT it did and now have a gin in this county,so they do not have to go into other states. Sure fun to watch the process.Sharon and Harry Drake
