  1. Blowing hard here today again and not the nicest conditions to be outside working in. Seen some pictures of some awfully large hail stones and oddly shaped ones too. Not sure what’s causing that. Was some around red deer too.
  2. Just a short clip of the dust storm tonight.
  3. This pan had been damaged at some point and time. It was definitely worn thin though too so it wouldn’t have taken much to damage it. Had my but full lifting it back in there by myself. Got it back up inside the combine after the big wind storm went through. Had a awful gust of wind for a while. Couldn’t even see across the yard at times. No rain here at all. Could see some clouds building up around us but clear skies here. Unreal how we can’t catch a rain this summer. Sure is getting dry around here. Not much for sloughs left in any of the fields aside from the real big ones and they’ve been shrinking a lot too.
  4. Well no more rain here yet. It’s been overcast and somewhat cool though so that has helped at least. The smoke had helped hold the heat off somewhat too. Canola is pretty much done blooming now. Some of mine is still a little yellow but the field at home is pretty much all green now. Got the 2188 out a couple days ago and started going over it. Putting new chopper knives on and changing the chopper concave out. It’s been hurt at sometime so I figured I’d change it out while I was at it. Kind of a pain getting it out though. There’s 12 bolts that go across the front. They used those stupid slotted serrated flange bolts. Good when they’re new but trouble when they get old and rusty. Had 5 that I had to grind out. Not my favorite thing to do inside the combine. Always a little scared of fire. Was up at the river the other night again too. Wanted to try out my trail I had cut down. Managed to get up the riverbank in about 5 minutes compared to half a hour last time lol. Was a whole pile of geese young and old took off from the shoreline when I got to the top. Not sure if they knew I was there or it was just a fluke. 2nd picture is kind of my vs of where’s Waldo only it’s where’s the dirt bike lol. It’s hiding in the middle of the pic
  5. Some awful bright lightning in the north tonight. Far enough away I can’t hear it but it’s sure lighting up the sky for miles. Tired to get a pic of the orange moon through the smoke but it doesn’t quite do it justice. It’s basically pitch black outside right now no editing of the photos that’s how bright it looked outside. The moon is of course a longer exposure so it shows up a little brighter then it really is.
  6. That farmyard you can see in the bottom of the pic is just shy of a mile away from here. Course I was up fairly high with the drone. Smokes been heavy enough above that you cannot tell where the clouds are. With the wind change tonight it is clearing out some though. Big thunder storm just skirting past us again. It’s headed for the fire again though so hopefully that’s a plus. Went out and checked my canola tonight on the reserve and it’s still blooming fairly good. Been blooming for almost 3 weeks now so that’s a plus at least. Stuff at home is almost all green now. Barley is almost a write off now 😢.
  7. Rain skirted past us this morning. Heading north east over the Harding fire so hopefully they get some rain on it and no more fresh fires popping up due to lightning. Smokes cleared up a bit this morning but it’s still quite hazy. It may have just lifted some as I couldn’t even see the thunderstorm to the north this morning. Could hear it rumbling though.
  8. They’re usually pretty quick. Is it on iron planet or up for auction at one of their sites? Did you try searching by the model or item description.
  9. Few pictures from tonight. Lots of smoke in the air here. Took the drone up tonight and tried to find the top of the smoke but gave up when it got to a undisclosed height lol. After the last forum update I can no longer upload my drone shots again. They just show up as a black screen. No failed upload message or anything. File name and size are there but it just shows black. Only way I can show them now is if I screenshot it then upload it. Creek has officially quit running here now. If I had snorkels I could probably drive all the way upstream now with no problems. Still some beaver dams holding water.
  10. Looks a lot greener then ours. Was out looking in the field and there’s some that never even fully headed out. Then you’ll get in along a spot that had more moisture and it’s standing 4’ tall and heads 4-5 inches long. Wheat is starting to turn too and I know for a fact the heads aren’t full. Canola is podding out and starting to fill but it’s got a long ways to go yet.

  12. Not good. Seems to be new fires popping up daily here. The north has been getting a few thunderstorms so that’s not helping in some regards. Nice 3 day soaker of rain would sure be welcome. Red is active fires and pink is monitoring
  13. How’s the fire season been up there? Getting any moisture at all? Fire ban in effect here again in the forests and parks. Been a lot of fires start up in the north here the last week due to lightning. Terribly dry here at the farm.
  14. That’s a nice area too. I’ve got pictures somewhere going over the Dunvegan bridge. Was probably back in the early 90tys when we went through. Think we had a Pontiac Parisienne Brougham We had a wheel bearing starting to fail when we crossed the bridge and had to go back to Rycroft of Fairview. Can’t remember now which it was.
