24 degrees in W SC this AM. You folks North of me could have kept the cold weather, you didn't have to share.

Lot of soybeans not cut yet. If they still had moisture, this should dry them out. Very little rain for weeks, some forecast next week.

I hear the corn harvest in IA was better than expected. IAGary and others there, how are prices?

21 here in southside central Va. this morning. Dry here too. Haven't had an inch of rain in over a month. Lots of small fires this past Sunday. 30 mph winds and 24% humidity. Lots of fuel to burn with leaves falling like rain.

Read 16 or 17 Deg F before the sun came up, which is not bad considering there is no wind, sunny clear day, nice for making firewood or similar outside work, no bugs, no sweat, etc. LOL Ground may have a little frost, makes for nice traction with no snow cover.

Will be a slave to the stove for the next 4 months or so, but it goes quickly, especially in about 40 days once the sun starts moving back, days get longer. One thing is for sure, its tolerable when the sun is shining, but once that sun goes down, whole different ball game LOL !

20 here on my front porch. Glad I checked on some things yesterday. At least the wind did not blow.
Frost everywhere here in Oakway.

With a big crop comes low prices.

$3.00 a bushel lower than last year at $4.40 or so per bushel.

This will slow the increase in land prices down a little.

Guys that buy corn for feed should by happy as well.

It was 15 degrees here on the NY- Canadian border
this morning. I went out and plugged the heaters, on the combine and tractor, into the electric supply early this morning. That makes it easier to start and a warm engine. Going out early to try the combine this morning with hopes that the cold has firmed up the ground some. It has been muddy going this fall but I could be done with one more good day.

Marilyn's brother lives in Clarksdale, Ms. I'll betcha he's shivering. Yesterday morning Spencer, Ia, 30 miles north of me had a temp of -1. My thermometer recorded +1 at sometime during that period. A few years ago I was north of Kamsack SK picking up a combine to bring home and the temp was below zero F with snow on the ground. I was glad to get back to Iowa where our temps were in the 'warm' 40's. Jim

Here in east central South Dakota corn is at $3.68. About 98% done here. I've been done a couple weeks with harvest. Wet corn plus price cuts into the bottom line!!

Seems a bit early for that, but they do go out when its questionable, has to be the litigious society we live in. I have a friend who works out of the local NY DOT yard, and is on the snowplow, state is pretty good about clearing, but sometimes the salt useage makes me wonder. Town used to be questionable, can recall many a night I had to walk up my road, fire up my plow truck and clear it, they seem a lot more dependable now. We are getting there, perfect weather for deer hunting. Had the old stove going all night, put a 10" elm round in there 11PM, still going at 6 am, upstairs the thermostat reads a full 2 degrees warmer than its set, now is the pay off for all the hard work of putting up wood to keep the oilman away LOL !
