Preparing for a storm

Rain from hurricane Michael is anticipated on Thursday, so we put "bonnets" on the round bales on Tuesday.
Bonnets carried out to the field

"nails" for attaching the bonnets

Unfolding the bonnet

Somewhat like putting a flat sheet onto a bed - centering it

"button" at the corner of the bonnet, with a pin through which the nail is positioned

The nail gets pushed or hammered down to the bale tightly

Fastening tightly

Almost all done!

All covered!
It is now Thursday evening, the rain has come, and we are doing fine!
