Hail, Wind, and Time

A harvest of dashed hopes.
That's what a pair of hailstorms across Nodaway County Thursday and Monday means for farmers, many of whom will lose all or virtually all of this year's corn and soybean crop-Maryville Daily Forum.
Many in this community lost their crops last week to a double-hit of 70 mph wind and hail that fell for 20 minutes. The storms stripped the corn, beans, and pastures.

Bins lay twisted. Trucks upside down.

East Coast Friends. My thoughts are with you as Irene bears down.

Take care.


  1. Wow, like a tornado hit it! I'm so sorry.

  2. Eeek...I will not complain about our above-average temps today. Prayers with those fine folks.

  3. I hope no one was hurt. The loss of livelihood is too much already.

  4. How terrible. I hope everyone was alright. There's no escaping nature.


Your Turn. Don't Be Shy
