What A Day!
What do a hill, a groundhog hole and driving fast have in common? All three combined to make this baler tip over. While trying to beat the rain, the farmer went a bit too fast on an incline and hit a groundhog hole. The tractor almost tipped over, too. Luckily, everything turned out all right, if not right-side-up.
