A great day for trouble

We had quite a few foul-ups today. It all started dark and early a little after 3:00am when our milk pump quit working. Dad ultimately figured out that the capacitor went bad, and we had a spare that fixed the problem. Over the course of the next several hours, we had...
  • a blockage in the milking barn's vacuum system that had to be cleared
  • a tire on the verge of blowout that had to be replaced on our sprayrig
  • a hydraulic hose on our front-end loader blew a fitting and had to be replaced
  • the tractor powering our feed wagon didn't grind the feed very good
  • the air conditioner in the tractor I was using stopped working
...and, of course, still no rain.

Oh well, just one of those days.
