Many many thanks for all your kind wishes. It helps.
After I went in to the sheriff's office personally, they came out. And found our truck.
Upside down, in the middle of the river.
The alleged meth-heads had apparently tried to ford what is usually a smallish creek with it- except it was swollen from the rains- which picked the truck up and flipped it. Dumping all the tools in it into the flooding creek.
Oddly, the chainsaw was on the shore- they'd evidently been using it. That still works.
No insurance is going to cover the truck- it wasn't covered as a "vehicle" - but being a truck, is apparently not a "farm machine", either... nice loophole for them.
And- both my professional mowers; critical for our harvests, were in the shop being repaired.
Here's the shop:
Right smack in the middle of this photo; which I borrowed from the Rochester Post Bulletin (many thanks).
So, they're toast. At least as big a problem as the untruck. Pretty hard to do our harvest stuff in grass up to our knees.
But, the sun is shining. And in a very bizarre development- our crops are NOT being stolen by the crows and jays as fast as usual. I was out before dawn checking- there just seem to be very few jays at all. West Nile? Possible.
I HAVE had a few volunteer pickers show up- a huge help. Long long ways to go, though- our harvest; of 3 different tree crops; runs through October. All the time.
