With a Grin of Delight—Wednesday, November 14, 2018

(Yes flip-flops…but as of today I’m switching into tennis shoes…it’s just too cold anymore. 🙂 )

I don’t usually go down with Terry to dump the corn at the Elevator…I just have too much stuff to do here at the house.  But his second load he asked if I would go with him

So I did!  🙂  This is the inside where the corn is unloaded.

After the corn is dumped, the floor is swept up, putting each kernel into the elevator.  (I swept the floor.  I’m good at things like that. 🙂 )

The line was long when we left …the semi’s take a whole hour to dump…just to give you an idea of the length of wait time. (But let me tell you, those drivers are not bored, they get out of the trucks and stand around in groups visiting. 🙂  )

Back to the field.  Twilight Terry finished up the last hopper full for the day.

I heard the crows calling as I was coming in from the field.  Change is in the air.

We start again in the early morning.

Propelled forward by a truckload of corn.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. It’s nice to see inside the grain elevator! I’ve never been inside one, but I’ve heard stories of the lines of trucks from my sister, who married a farmer from western Kansas. It kind of reminds me of the line at the processing plant where Jim used to deliver milk. Each tanker would take about an hour to unload. I would have got a lot of reading done, I think! 🙂


  2. Glad to see you are getting your corn done. It is a crazy hurry-up here too, with folks trying to beat the early snow. I just put away my shorts last week, so I am with on on flip flops…can’t wear them actually cuz of a broken foot some years ago, but crocs work. lol
