TID BITS

Just finishing a nice moisture event for second morning in a row.

Yesterday was from .2 on south side of south farm to 3/4" on north farm.

Quite a bit of wind with this one this am. 

Not expecting good positive things on CBOT Sun- Mon.as it looks fairly wide spread on radar.

 

Also found this update on Interstate 40 bridge...

Re: TID BITS

Very interesting video on the bridge.  Especially the part about issues introduced in the welding process.  Alot of inspection work to do.

Re: TID BITS

So far the radar path doesn't look too promising for the southern 2 - 3 rows of MN counties.  The air is  pretty dry so it will take a strong storm to overcome that.

Re: TID BITS

I am wrong about the rain about done.

1.90" so far and radar shows it still goes 90 miles west.

My beans are at great risk of just being an insurance claim.

Remind me again, how many was I supposed to have presold?

------- 

His explanation on the bridge told why it had not collapsed YET.

Not a weight bearing member and was/is not only tension beam on that side.

looks like a well designed bridge to stand and be serviceable for 5 years with that failure.

Getting my annual purple stained tounge. 

Enjoying first piece of wild raspberry pie this morning.

This rain should help them not abort the secondary berries.

Re: TID BITS

Gurly. Hope that band out around Mitchell sd builds into a meaningful moisture event for you.

Sun is shining here now so just 10days till drought mode again...

Not seeing many reports of over 4 tenths anywhere north or west of here very far, some but not many.

Anybody got any amounts to report?

Or any other interesting tid bits?

Re: TID BITS

The conditions in the west half of the US are hard to ignore..... an awful lot of the weather of the high plains comes over the divide from the west eventually.

engineering wise ..... what size of gas powered home generator charges an electric car in what time frame?  might be a good investment.

Re: TID BITS

Think I'll skip right to the gas powered car.

Skip pulling the trailer pulling the fossil powered gen set and put the gas directly in the car.

Re: TID BITS

.54"  by this noon and .88" for the month of June.  The rains the last few days have been mostly south of I-80.  Just enough to spook the market down.  We will be back in drought mode in three days or less.  

 

Other tid bits? Wild raspberries are ready!!  Picked a bucket full last evening, almost bug free!
