Farm Talk's Top 10

March 6, 2012

The Top 10 observations after a wind storm:

Parsons, Kansas — 10.  Hedge trees that blow over tend to fall to the fence side.

9.  The good news—all the feed sacks you’ve been meaning to clean up are gone; the bad news—they’ve been replaced with the neighbor’s feed sacks.

8.  Lots of sight-seers driving by, precious few bring chain saws.

7.  Okay, if it was just a straight-line wind then how did that thing end up going that direction and that other stuff went the opposite direction?

6.  Living without electricity for a day or two is like visiting the past—and it turns out those good ol’ days weren’t all that good.

5.  All the debris in the yard effectively camouflages all the debris that was there before the storm.

4.  TV meteorologists get a lot more excited about bad weather as it gets closer to where they’re standing.

3.  Remember the county agent saying that those Bradford Pear trees are susceptible to wind damage? Well, he was right.

2.  If you keep a shed jam-packed with junk, it’s less likely to blow away.

1.  Has that self-feeder always been out in the middle of that wheat field?
