Hauling Grain

 There are trucks on the road in GriggsDakota.
We knew last Summer when we put the wheat in the bin that it would have to come out. But on those hot days and nights, time was the deciding factor.
Hauling grain from a steel grain bin is not as difficult as it once was. Even though we do not have a modern automated set up, the grain vac makes short work of filling the grain cart. It vacuums the grain from the bin and up into the cart. The auger on the cart moves the wheat from the grain cart to the truck. 
The minimum maintenance roads will not see a snow plow through the winter, but they are still open. 
We have had about a foot of snowfall in November, but most of it has melted. 
 The roads have a little snow and ice in sheltered areas, but are in good shape.
An open winter, one when there is not deep snow cover over the land, is forecast for this Winter. Of course, on the Great Plains it is difficult to find a reliable forecast for the next 48 hours.  
For now, the open roads are nice for the grain haulers in GriggsDakota.
