Groundhog - Farmer 1-0

The hunt is on
There are 2 holes
Plastic melts, so killing them is not as easy
as you can see, they eat quite a bit of beans

Stout Fire Department

 Stout Fire Department has 4 vehicles 

A pumper truck

Severe Thunderstorms

Both Rien's and Olga & Stephen's flights are cancelled
this is due to severe Thunder Storms in Chicago

That same system dropped lots os rain in Cedar Falls

This is not a river, it is a field

Lots of runoff

This is a field too, not a lake

Stephen and Olga's garden is in a good place
I've seen gardens that are a lot wetter

Crop Tour around Stout

A few beef animals are around

The corn is growing in the humidity

80 mm of rain in a couple of days is a bit much

It happens more often, so there are "water ways" everywhere
grass strips where water can run off

i wasn't sure what these strips were

This is a fertile area
