Jada: Rain in Pratt

Yesterday Hoffman Harvesting was able to get a full day of harvest done in the Pratt area. Around suppertime we celebrated another birthday in the field, but by the time the cake was cut, drops started to fall. At first it was only a sprinkle, but radar proved it would be more than that. We received a half inch and along with the humidity it was enough to stop us for another day. Here are some pictures of the action.
