Summer in February

February 3rd, 2016 · No Comments · Posted in farming


A year ago we had four feet of snow on the ground and temperatures testing record lows. You wouldn’t know it looking out the window. Our biggest snowfall this season occurred a couple of days ago–maybe two inches–and it’s already melted away as the mercury climbs past 50 degrees.

El Nino? We’ll take it. According to my wife, we’re owed these balmy days after two brutal winters in a row. The animals are plain bored eating hay and hanging around the shelter. They’re roaming the still-dormant pastures, looking for lunch on the hoof.

Yesterday I took the cleats off my boots because most of the ice has disappeared, replaced by mud. But stay tuned. There’s still plenty of winter on the calendar.
