|This is Brent, freaking out.|
"What's going on?"
"Wellll, I finally bit the bullet and bought a new grain bin," he said, with a groan.
"That's great! Right? Why don't you sound happy about it?"
"Because I bought a used one and they are going to pay for shipping and, well, I'm not ready for it."
"When will it be here?"
"Tomorrow. I have no gravel down, no cement floor and I have no idea where to put it."
Once again, I was no help at all, so I did what I always do, took his picture. Good news is, he no longer notices.
Sure enough, the next day, I was about to head to Walhalla to return a DVD ("The Debt" - loved it!) and buy me a popsicle when I saw a "WIDE LOAD" come creeping down the highway. I headed back, grabbed the camera and well... I took more photos.
About this point, I realize that the new giant bin is headed straight for my garden and then I start freaking out. But what am I going to do, start screaming like a banshee? "My BABIES!!!" No. I just had to hold my breath and hope that Brent would have enough foresight to protect my wee farm.
I wondered how the hell the bin was going to get upright but I'm slowly starting to realize just how big a role hydraulics plays in farming.
Meantime, the SCRANCH skyline now has a modern, updated look!
