Snow Day!

Feb 27, 2013 by

Remember when you were a kid and snow days were the highlight of your whole life?

I still feel that way…though, in fairness, now that I’m a SAHM, I usually don’t HAVE to go anywhere when it snows and the roads are a mess.  So that helps. 🙂

For farmers, however, a snow day is really no different than any other day.  People seem to think that because the weather is bad that farmers must not have any work to do.  I get it.   Farming is, by nature, an outdoor career, after all!

Alas, planting season is coming soon and there is work to be done, albeit mostly indoors!  Today, Adam and his brother are scooping grain bins and trucking soybeans to the river.  When the snow melts and the ground thaws, it will be time to start spreading fertilizer and greasing the planter.

Desipte these flurries, spring is a’comin!
