Janel: Busy

Holdrege, Nebraska—It’s another kind of busy at this time of year. Winding down from harvest is quite the change. Moving out of the camper, getting it winterized and then moving back into the house is a lot of work. The past few days I’ve settled up with farmers and done a lot of organizing.

There is always so much to do. I’ve washed pickups, trucks and grain trailers. Changing engine oil in the trucks is next on the list. I’ve been busy trying to hire a crew for next season. We’ve got three guys here working full-time. I’ve also been busy with driver training and CDL testing when I get a chance.

I’ve got a nephew and a niece playing high school basketball. Sunder is a sophomore at Holdrege and Sophia is a freshman at Loomis. I enjoy going to their games in the wintertime.

We had one combine harvesting milo and corn here this past week. That job is now finished and I think all of the combines are parked now. We’ve got trucks hauling cornstalk bales and grain. When the roads are clear we spend a lot of time trucking. Our forecast is sunny with highs in the 40s. I enjoy this time of year and love my winters in Nebraska.
