My 2013 Post on Facebook was: Oh, that I have the strength to change the things I might, the courage to accept the things I cannot change and the wisdom to know the difference. Petty Corollary - Or that I will have enough young relatives that I can live vicariously through their accomplishments. Kind of the AA saying but modified to my tenants.
We had such a mild winter last year and such a mild fall that it is somewhat surprising that we now have cold weather and three inches of snow. I hope that the moisture is a good sign that things will be a little wetter this year. I am pretty sure that it has been so dry that there is no sub soil moisture to help the farmers grow crops this spring unless we get a lot more snow. I can do without the cold, but a lot more snow wouldn't hurt a thing. I am sitting inside looking out the window and resisting the urge to go out and put the blade on the tractor to try to push the snow around a little. It would really be more play than serious work but I am trying to resist the challenge and the fun.
Looking down the hill, I can see that something tipped over the deer feeding pan last night to get down to the feed under the snow. In just a little while I will go down and look at the footprints (or hoof prints, or better yet, tracks) to see who was the culprit. I will bring in the trail cam and look for picture evidence. Then I will fill the pan and put out the camera for another round of fetch the camera and see what is to be seen.
