A good friend of mine lost this combine in the wild-fires that swept through the state last week. The fire was in north central Iowa. It is just amazing how one spark from the machinery can cause a fire that can quickly sweep across a field of beans or corn.

I love the weather this week. We are set up for very dry conditions with temperatures getting into the 80s each day.

The records for Des Moines are all in the 90s. We should be shy of those highs.

On the other side of seasonal swings…the Sierra Nevada Mountains are under winter storm watches. They could see a foot of snow or more this week.
