    The train traffic through town has doubled since we now have west to east bound trains. The Missouri River is rising and is full of debris. They might close the bridge in Jefferson City due to a runaway barge. What a mess.

    Last night a friend of ours won the stock car division main event. Exciting race, nothing like dirt track racing. [​IMG]

    Well I’m so hungry I could eat a horse and guess what no food in the house. I should say quick food. I’m just a little behind and I have been eating dust since 4pm. We could use a little rain but at the same time I can use a few more dry days to get all the fieldwork done.

    At least all the equipment has held together and I didn’t have to stop to fix, weld or replace anything. Though some of those chisel points are wearing thin like a razor blade. The plan is to get a few areas of vegetables in tomorrow morning for the girls stand later this summer. Hopefully I can get the field and sweet corn later in the week.

    I only get a half day tomorrow because the youngest has a soccer game out near the Pittsburgh Airport so that will take the rest of the day when you throw in all the driving time.

    [FONT=&quot]Well it is 9:42PM and is in the high 60’s with the threat of rain. The sky is black. :) :)

    Good morning and top 'o' the day to all of ye.

    I wouldn't be surprised if my bacon is a bit extra crispy today. My trailer took a direct lightning strike last night from the storms that were passing through. No harm done. The charge passed through the metal skin of the trailer (1.5 mm thick aircraft aluminum and 28 gauge steel) to ground. The trailer has steel skirting which is bolted to the trailer and buried in the ground, secured with copper rods every 5 feet.
