Harvest started on the Camas Prairie this week.  It seemed like all of a sudden it was in full swing.  Shown is Eric Wassmuth putting his new combine to the test.  It is a New Holland with a 36 foot header.  It seems to be doing a good job and makes short work of a field. Things got interesting Saturday night when the storm came through.  Primeland Big Butte Elevator got backed up and truckers were held up for four hours. The Primeland crew treated everyone well during the wait.  Lightning from the storm started several fires around the prairie and the river breaks.  Most of them were put out quickly by the fire departments and local people who immediately stop their own machines and go to help a neighbor.  We had a few drops of rain and a huge wind for about 30 seconds, but the Cottonwood area got a hard rain.  There must be fires somewhere as the air is still smoky this morning.
