I saw combines in the field the day before Christmas Eve, getting the corn and milo out of fields that had been too wet to harvest until cold weather finally hit and froze the ground deep enough to get equipment into the field. I was out checking some of the area today and noted that it appears everybody finally got the last of the crops in the bin. What a harvest!
