February Thaw

3 Feb

We’ve had a 75* (41* in Celcius) shift in temperatures between Thursday morning and Sunday afternoon.  We are positively warm today!  It’s 50*F (10*C).  That means we’ve shifted to melting and fog.

It’s a horrible mess in the barnyard.

Friday afternoon, you could barely see the top edge of the wading pool because of all the snow.

The snow is melting from pasture.  I can see dead grass out there again.

That also means it’s mud season in my kitchen with all the paws tracking it inside.

Don’t worry, we’ll be back to cold by Tuesday, which means the barnyard will be solid ice then.

    Oh, the days of mud on the farm. My mom drove the school bus for the country school I attended as a child. Most of the roads were just the blackland with ditches cut to help drain away some of the water when she started driving in 1948. When I was in grade school one time the bus slipped into the ditch. I broke my shoe as I tried to pull it out of the ankle deep mud.
