The weather pattern has turned to the the cooler side. While it feels nice, it would be good to keep getting sunshine and heat to get the corn to the finish line. The crops in Northern Illinois continue to look good. Parts of the western corn belt and some other areas have missed a lot of the rains that our area received. It will be interesting to see where the national yield comes in with all of the variability, late planting, replanting, and dry areas. I posted a video from a grain bin collapse and explosion if you didn't already see it. That would not be a good day!
It's hard to believe that it's time to start getting equipment and grain set-ups ready for fall. But it's getting closer each day. The kids are enjoying their last week without school. Peyton's team had their last tournament this weekend in Chicago. So all sports are done for now! Sarah's brother Ryan and his wife had their first baby this weekend. A healthy baby boy!
Have a good week!
