Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Midwest Digest, July 19, 2021

Max Armstrong talks about a temporary bridge closing, the local events this week including Farm Tech Days, tractor supplies and the Big Boy locomotive.

The Mackinac bridge was closed yesterday for a while after a bomb threat.

Next week is Iowa's cross-state bicycle ride, as well as the Oshkosh air show in Wisconsin.

Tractors are in short supply this year, and compact tractors are big sellers.

Big Boy, a steam locomotive, will travel through 10 states in August. You can see states about the locomotive on Max's Twitter account, @maxarmstrong.
