Its been a week of heat and storms. We have been out of the severe weather here at the ranch and haven't had any storm related damages, but the city of Leola has gotten hit pretty hard with hail. Here are some hailstones that were picked up in the city of Leola and did quite a bit of damage to the houses in town.

We're almost done with our second cutting hay crop. After we bale the hay we move the bales off of the fields with our bale mover and row them.
