The dust of a million combines

The dust of a million combines fills the air during harvest season.  More dust rises behind trucks scurrying from field to bin site where the grain will be stored.  With little wind today it hung in the air for quite a while before settling back to earth.

Corn driers howl as they remove moisture so the grain can be safely stored.

Augers rattle as grain is moved from trucks to bins.

Every step adds more dust to the air.  Dust is a fact of harvest.
