Sick weather, sick kid

Yesterday we started cutting our remaining ryegrass. The lunchtime weather forecast looked like we could get through until Thursday without much chance of rain. We baled and wrapped about half of what we cut, but decided the rest was thick enough to let lay overnight without worrying about it drying out.

Well, now we need it to dry out.

Unexpected thunderstorms rolled through late last night and made everything even more damp. The skies remain cloudy and there's a fair chance of rain for this afternoon and tomorrow. We'll be able to bale and wrap what has been cut, but we may have to hold off on mowing any more acreage. Time will tell.

I'm personally not going to be involved in any of it, or at least not this morning. My son has what looks to be a stomach bug and I'm taking him to the doctor in a little while. Of course this would happen on my wife's first day back at work!
