Lookin' off my front porch

It's spraying season in farm country.

This afternoon as I was working at the desk, I heard this incredible roar overhead. As I looked out the aerial spray plane was in front of the house, not much higher than the electrical poles.

I have to admit, chemicals aside, it's darn fun to watch him as he dips and rises over the trees and wires. I am no airplane fanatic and I really HATE to fly but this fascinates me.

Making the loop

Dropping lower


Take that you fungus!
After consulting my sister-in-law, the farmer, they're spraying for a fungus of some type that is prevalent in a wet year which this year has definitely been.

Return lap- it just amazes me how low they can get.

  1. Lori I'm amazed that you're afraid to fly! What's to be afraid of? You'll either get where you intended to (and surely you wouldn't be going there if it wasn't a fun place?) or you'll get to heaven! Now what's bad about either of those? :) Blessings, marlene
