Who's slingin' mud out there?

I don't mean the figurative kind...I'm talking literally! Just ask Marketeye how muddy it is in Warren County, Iowa, here -- may or may not be muddy enough to get a skidsteer stuck! 

 

So, who else is slipping and slopping around out there this week? We're on day 3 of some pretty good showers. It's really starting to get sloppy around here. 

 

And, while we'r'e at it, anybody have any good tricks to get a stuck skidsteer out of the mud?! I may or may not know a guy... Ha!

Muddy here at the end of the Rainbow here in South Podunk Country, Ioway

 

Almost 1 1/2 inches.

60% of the time, it works every time.

No tillage being done here in NW OH, but I'm betting there are some sandy fields being planted to oats this week. And I'm sure there's a few patches of sweet corn going in.

Rained most of last night, and all morning here.


To pull out a skidsteer, get a long chain, and grappling hook.  Wait by the nearest RailRoad tracks, and throw the hook so it catches on the locomotive, as it goes by.  Have the other end hooked to the skid steer.

1.19" so far here in central IA.  Nephew  in western Kansas, 1.35.  Just what their wheat needed.  A little sweet corn planted here too.

Don't want to rub anything in, just trying to pass along the information

 

Bone Dry is EC IL.  A few guys have ran their planters on <100 acres.  Could use the rain to be honest.

NW kansas...1 1/10 to 1 3/10th ..The wheat is exploding in growth... three weeks early in growth stage, most is jointed.

 

Looks like a great crop as far as bu/acre but getting VERY supceptable to frost or freeze from here on out.

60% of the time, it works every time.

2" in Central Kansas.  Raining has stopped and sunny and warmer days in the 7 day forecast.  Looks like everything will be green and growing.  Winter wheat really looks good and starting to grow like mad, sure hope we don't get a late frost.

Heavy fog this Friday morning in central Iowa. The sun is right behind the fog, thank you God. Not sure how much rain we have had this week, but it has fallen everyday since Monday. Skidloader is out, logchain was used. :smileyhappy:
