My condolences

A lot of ag accidents happen. My neighbor stopped disc plowing to eat lunch (back in the '60s) and didn't see that his family's dog had taken a nap in the shade of the discs. When he started back up he ran over him

Just recently I read where a lot of farm tractor operators fall asleep and fall out of their seat while pulling implements like disc plows that put them away in the most horrible fashion. I used to plow for neighbors at 13 years old and never thought much about that although I know my folks did.

Some of the hardier strains of crops actually survived the high 20s Fahrenheit last week I hear. And some did not.
