Don’t get squirrely

March 12, 2017

I’ve been told people really do get squirrely when there
is a full moon. Emergency Rooms are busy as are the jails. But
here we ask that if you’re driving and run across a convoy of
of trucks with trailers hauling round bales of hay to take a
deep breath and don’t fly into a rage because it might make you
a minute or two late.

These trucks, mostly heading south, are simply farmers and
ranchers helping farmers and ranchers affected by fires. Oh,
you say the local and national news channels haven’t mentioned
the fact that almost 2 million acres of agricultural land has
burned? These fires have destroyed ranch lands and multi-
generational farms. Some ranchers have lost 80% of their herds
and more animals continue to die as they lose the battle with
smoke inhalation and burns.

Hundreds of calves have been orphaned when their mothers
burned up leading them to safety. And people have died in these
fires trying to protect their livestock and property. So the
trucks are carrying the hay to help and comfort those who have
lost so much. Give them a thumbs up, a smile, or a wave. They
are only trying to help.
