Wheat Battered By Wind- A Picture to Share and This Week's Video Weather Forecast

Sun, 15 Apr 2012 18:50:39 CDT

Wheat Battered By Wind- A Picture to Share and This Week's Video Weather Forecast Above is a wheat field picture shared with us by Tom Smith from Kiowa County in southwest Oklahoma- this field hit by hard rains and lots of wind on Friday, April 13, 2012. The picture here was shot soon after the storm and it showed a lot of the wheat lodged. Tom wrote us later some of the specifics of the field- "This field was somewhat summerfallowed as last year it was planted late and with the drought the wheat died out around January 2011. This year it was fertilized like the other wheat and was growing tall and thick which was why it was damaged more than wheat around it." He adds that it actually seemed to be recovering a little after the fierce weather conditions battered the field- at least that was the word late Saturday afternoon.


If you have pictures of wheat either handling the rough weather okay- or of damage you may have received from hail and high winds- drop me an email at ron@ronhays.com and we will be sharing those photos with others across the state. We can either share your name with everyone- or we will use them without a name and just a general location. Over the last couple of years- many of you have shared pictures with us and we always appreciate that so very much.


AND- speaking of weather- after the tragic turn that Saturday and early Sunday morning's weather threw at Oklahoma- we are pleased to see tamer weather headed our way. Students at the OU Weather School in Norman have assembled a pretty good video of the weather for the week ahead- click on the play button below to check things out.
