A Blue Norther blew in while we were piling beets last night, the one that the weather channel was forecasting. Now, that was quite an experience ! The official weather reporting station for Hillsboro reported over 7 inches of snow from the event.
This photo taken from the control cab. Note that the 32’ high and 200 plus feet wide beet pile can’t be seen for the “sideways” snow that is falling.
Keeping the piler going in that high of a volume of snow fall was tough. Belts would slip and drive motors would stall out. Got the last of the trucks dumped and headed home @ 0630 or so. Early to bed, and slept in ! Having fun at the sugar beet harvest !
