Trying to beat the rain

The last couple of days have been quite the rat race. With the looming forecast of rain for tomorrow and the fact that the forecast has said rain for two weeks has us all running around like rats. Last night we finally the in-laws oats done with neighbors help. We had two combines, three grain trucks, a baler and a swather rolling in the fields yesterday! I drove the kids down to see the commotion and to get some pictures (although it was too dark for that -- crazy! And it was only 730) and it was a little overwhelming to see all the help we had. It is so appreciated and the road is well traveled both directions. We try to help out whenever we can too.

Today we have cattle coming home from PFRA and we are working on combining our oats. We have hired an extra combine with a straight cut header since not all our oats are swathed yet. They should be done soon.

Not only were we trying to beat this rain tomorrow, Corey's parents are wanting to head out to Alberta right after a wedding we have tomorrow night. If there was still crop on the ground, they most likely would not of been going. Plus its Thanksgiving this wknd!!!!!!  I'm so looking forward to having my hubby come inside for the night sooner than 9 or 10 at night! And the good food to come on Sunday :)
