This morning I actually got up earlier than usual and walked across the road to get a better look at the baler that caught fire last evening. I really hope that the owners have good insurance on it.
Although we, or I didn’t think about this happening, Tom never wanted to buy his own baler. He didn’t want to do the upkeep and now I think we are both glad that we don’t have one. I would freak me out if it caught on fire while baling or just sitting there. I am not sure if this one was still attached to the tractor when it caught fire, or had already been disconnected. I am just glad that the grass and other bales didn’t burn any worse than they did. And I am glad that no one got hurt. At least I haven’t heard that anyone has.
The grass wasn’t as bad as I thought it was. Bad enough. I don’t know how many bales can’t be baled this year. I do know that there was at least two bales burned.
Some of the bales already done and two of the many wind rows.
Our house about 1/4 mile from the fire. Give or take a few feet.
Stay Safe and God Bless!
