As I sit in our nice warm house listening to howling winds outside, I think back to yesterday. Yes, yesterday. As in January 4th. When it was just Cold and Snow outside.
No wind chills in the negatives. No additional 4-6 inches of snow. No single digit temperatures. Just a regular winter day in north Missouri. A day where the kids were able to spend time playing outside, we shoveled the snow off of the sidewalks, hauled more firewood up to the house, set some brush piles on fire, made sure the pets were nice and warm, rolled out large round bales of hay for the cows and welcomed a bottle calf to the family. Just a regular day of Cold and Snow for a farm family.
As you can see, yesterday was a good day. Today, however, is not a nice day. So please everyone, if you are being blasted by the arctic temperatures and gale force winds, stay safe.
Blessings to you and to all those working outside on days like this,
Laurie – Country Link
