What a difference a day can make when storms hit the ole crops/gardens!
Some of these pics were July 9 and some after the storm July 10!---The rain was 1.5" in a quarter hour here at our place and winds were so fast that they only lasted 5 mins. or so but were hard on the garden.---totaly destroyed the wheat, oats, and barley! --some of the garden recovered but a lot was lost!

the wheat,oats, and barley were just a few days away from being ready to harvest with the combine! thanks; sonny

You certainly have quite a garden...I take it you must grow commercially....To bad about your grain crops, but your windmills are growing nicely.... :lol: (Just trying to throw some humor on a "less than happy" subject).....I know what you mean about the satellite....I have wild blue....Funny, they don't discount the time its off the grid, you still get charged even though you can't use it :evil: .....At least with the power its on a meter..(Old Lineman :mrgreen: ...Take care thanks for the pic's....Dave
