winter storm warning and watch for Winter wheat area

I take no joy in giving these links.  some conditions of up to 8 inches of snow, 40 mph winds in the warning area.

I personally would be sick seeing that.

 

this SHOULD cause a good jump in wheat..........

 

SW you might have called it and jumped in the market just right.

 

guess we're going to have to buy you a blonde wig, and a copy of john cash's "my name is sue, how do you do !

Re: winter storm warning and watch for Winter wheat area

Not good.  Thinking of the "cow-calf"  folks in this area too.

Re: winter storm warning and watch for Winter wheat area

even more bad news.

 

I noted yesterday I was trying to clear some ground, and some of the trash trees didn't look right, and yes the leaf were frozen.....

that was a few feet above ground, but down the road, the wheat was heading.........worried

 

here is a story on the wheat.......and this is the first freeze......there is more this weekend.....we are not in the snow area,

I think those areas.......I think it's over i'm afraid......how many years have some of these boys went without a good crop,

and with operations cost higher all the time, and now limited income.......i'm sorry folks

Lots of rain this evening. This could be a mess with a little cold. But still 42 down here

Re: winter storm warning and watch for Winter wheat area

sorry folks, but they have pushed the winter storm warning further east, and the same with the watch.  the watch now extends

into central Nebraska also.

 

I looked at the Nebraska soils data, on the 27th, we were looking at 4 inch temps in the mid 40's.

 

looked at the iowa soil temp maps, about the southern half was in the low 50's.....the north half was in the 40's.

 

the "book" says 50 is the critical temp.

 

SW that little "wager", might pay off......

Re: winter storm warning and watch for Winter wheat area

Looking at radar, it appeared to have snowed out in that area for more than 24 hours already........It has to be adding up I would think.
