Internet Troubles—Thursday, October 13, 2016

canal-002Our internet isn’t working today.  I am hoping this gets posted, but one never knows.

canal-001The water in our canal is clear as the Blue Mesa Reservoir, of which it comes from.  Very few farmers are irrigating now—although there are some…new seedings of alfalfa and winter wheat.

canal-003By November 1st the water will be stopped and stored in the Blue Mesa Reservoir until next spring.  The canal will dry up…if our grandchildren were here, it would make a great play ground.

Today I’m taking advantage of our warm summer-like days and painting the chicken house.  We got the pump winterized and the hose put away yesterday, and all the lines blown out.  Today I finish getting my last gallon of paint on the hen house and the picket fences.

Terry is working on the corn combine…with the thought corn harvest will start in a month!

I hope this makes it to you!  I’m rather addicted to the internet.  🙂

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Post received! It must have fixed itself. I hate when something happens to our internet connection. …. I think we’re all addicted — but nowadays that is kind of like saying we’re addicted to our refrigerator (for instance) they are appliances we can’t function without these days.
