Last weekend we spent over 2 1/2 hours thawing pipes with days of sub zero temps, my hand practically froze milking and we had to clear the driveway of snow.
This weekend, the sun was shining, the birds were audible, no coat/no gloves milking, the snow is about gone, able to get that chicken coop cleared, clothes were dried on the line and there was mud. SO much mud. I think I did 4 loads of muddy clothes laundry in 2 days. I suppose we ought to tap our trees. The true sign of spring is that tennis elbow acting up. It CANNOT act up now....spring hasn't even sprung, there's so much to be done! But then, they say more snow is coming. Who knows?!
