  • It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild.

    Since he was an Indian chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets.

    When he looked at the sky, he couldn’t tell what the weather was going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

  • Lack of rainfall has put many corn producers in a bind across the state, forcing them to begin harvest before the normal time. 

    Early storage results in more days of warm, moist air before we reach the relatively secure air temperatures of 50 degrees or lower. This early harvest is compounded because the kernels are often still at very high moisture levels.

  • With all the rain we have been having, more moisture may build up inside your home from water damage due to leaks, condensation and increased humidity. 

    Molds produce tiny spores that travel through the air and either settle on surfaces to create new mold colonies or are inhaled creating allergic reactions or asthma in people.

    Molds can grow almost anywhere as long as moisture is present (including wood, paper, carpet and food).
