Working in Wind and Wind and More Wind — Thursday, April 14, 2022

Terry and I spent time working in a most terrible wind (60 m.p.h. gusts)

We had to get the siphon tubes out and the ditches, sorta kinda cleaned because it was time to start the water.

Hair flung so high I look like I could take off

Then the storm arrived so the next morning we moved water (running water) with ice on it.

Baby, it’s cold!


Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Yes, it has been in low 30s here in south central kansas south of wichita. 60 today. has been windy the last 3 months and fires. The grass is getting green, so hope that helps. Some have lost everything to fires. . Glad you are getting your water.


  2. The yearly struggle between winter and spring ~ this year seems to be extra windy! Can’t believe you guys were out in all that dust – uck! I have grass seed to spread, but not in this stuff…
    I am hoping spring wins out real soon! Don’t blow away!


  3. Watched a program about the Colorado river and irrigation the other night and thought of you…I had to explain about your irrigation and how it works and that the water has a memory:)
