What hazards, near misses or casualties have you had this year?

Any good stories or prayer requests from this harvest season.

Loaded grain wagon pushed the tractor into a jack-knife, onto the highway. Thankfully, no one coming my way and minimal damages...need to control the momentum/slow down.

Local farmer fell from a combine, initially some paralysis, now he is regaining feeling. Praying for healing to full mobility and back to his love for farming with his family.

Had a cutoff wheel blow up and kick the grinder back in my face back in June. 3 hours of surgery and doing just fine now. Ordered the best face shield I could find after that. I'll never use a grinder without one again.

The local co-op tipped a floater over on our field yesterday. Driver was fine, floater is not! He slid on frozen ground on a steep hill and caught a combine rut. 3 wheeled Case machine.

Had my fingers in the wrong place at the wrong time on a chemical eductor on my Pitstop setup. Felt like chopping carrots. Index finger 98% chopped off just hanging by skin and middle finger chopped about 90% off. Dr's at New West in Kearney took good care of me and fingers are now almost 100% healed and back to normal 👍
