As wet as things are a wet snow or rain would make running a combine impossible till it froze hard.  Corn is at 5% done and almost no beans yet, more beans than normal because they lost the window on corn, some beans weren't planted till late June.

Yup , the weather has gone wacky ( scientifical term)

There are STILL tropical storms in the Gulf and the Pacific off the Baja. It looks like the Great Southwest may get classic El Nino
weather this winter ( ie huge snow dumps) even tho the classic conditions are not quite there for it.

SE Asia, Japan and Korea are getting hit with a record number of typhoons. Japan is experiencing the worst flooding and mudslides
since the March 2011 Tsunami.

Looks like mebbe corn and bean futures and going to be crazy. Also pork, since Japan and China are losing their
pigs to swine fever and since China lost HALF their pigs nationwide China is tapping it's "national reserves" . 
I did not know that some countries maintain "strategic reserves" of food!
It actually seems like a smart thing to do.

Oh look, Korea has swine fever now too. I wonder how it spreads?

"The virus is then easily spread between pigs by direct contact with an infected animal, its body fluids (nasal, oral, feces, blood) or tissues (meat), or indirectly from contact with contaminated objects (fomites), such as vehicles, equipment, footwear or clothing."

"Classical swine fever or hog cholera (also sometimes called pig plague based on the German word Schweinepest)
Clinical signs
       Swine fever causes fever, skin lesions, convulsions, and usually (particularly in young animals) death within 15 days.
       The signs are indistinguishable from those of African swine fever.
Immunization
       A small fraction of the infected pigs may survive and are rendered immune. Artificial immunization procedures were first
      developed by Marion Dorset."

The Merck manual has lotsa info!
       https://www.merckvetmanual.com/generalized-conditions/classical-swine-fever/overview-of-classical-swine-fever
" Classical swine fever is a contagious, often fatal, disease of pigs clinically characterized by high body temperature, lethargy, yellowish diarrhea, vomiting, and a purple skin discoloration of the ears, lower abdomen, and legs. It was first described in the early 19th century in the USA. Later, a condition in Europe termed ?swine fever? was recognized to be the same disease. Both names continue to be used, although in most of the world the disease is now called classical swine fever (CSF) to distinguish it from African swine fever (see African Swine Fever), which is a clinically indistinguishable disease but caused by an unrelated DNA virus."

Japan is going the immunization via vaccine route.

China is just slaughtering and ( hopefully) destroying.

But China has been known to put diseased and rotting meat and fish into the marketplace and often tries to sell it on the
 international market. The inspectors at the Ports regularly reject entire shipments of diseased/rotting meat and fish from China.

We got lucky east of ABQ , there are a couple small hog farms that sell quite reasonably to the local independent food store. Great pork, chops are often on sale for around $1.25 a pound.

Whole hogs here are $75 to $100 if you are a diyselfer or know someone.
Maybe the problems in China and Japan will turn it around here.

Coffee is up- currently 73 will be in mid 90?s later no rain in forecast. Maybe a pork chop on my biscuit this morning will work.

Back in California, there are laes/rules on pigs. Makes it too difficult to raise them profitably for the average Joe.

Weather is 55 and overcast today. I'm done with class got the day.

Evidently Mr. Ringo is an educated man.

I just switched between classics, but hey. It works.

Hope TK has snow chains in his truck.... ::)

It snowed here a little, but nothing stuck. Great Falls and Kalispell are really getting pounded. East Glacier got 3 feet, and it's still falling.
