Let me tell you guys, this crazy winter here in northeast Ohio has been a roller coaster. The ground has not frozen once, unless you count the gravel drive where the snow gets plowed. We have had some cold days, but they always come after a layer of snow blankets the ground. The snow has melted off several times this year. Rain has pushed the streams above flood stage several times. Walking through the fields is a muddy walk at best.
Doing much of anything this winter takes a real juggling act. I am falling behind on several projects. Now, its maple sugaring time and the warm weather may shorten our season. My winter cow pasture is a sea of mud.
I could whine and and moan, but instead, I will dig a little deeper. I have to just stay focused. Spring work is right around the corner, no matter how our sugaring season turns out, spring will arrive. So as the weather stresses me out, I hope all of you are getting your work done, your draft animals worked and the items on your project list checked off!
Thanks for being a family of friends with whom I can chat, here on the porch!
