The snow makes for a shitty drive to town for groceries, or feeding livestock. But it is much needed for that important spring run-off.
We use the dugout by the house for the cattle waterers, and the hydrant by the garden. Frank also made a few smaller dugouts out in the pastures for the cattle. We also have another dugout in another area of the land.The only way that any of these dugouts can fill up is either by spring runoff or by the rain. And since we didn't have much of the latter over the past couple of summers, we really need the snow.
The first winter here we had close to ten feet of snow. I am hoping we get that again this year. I know, I must be a sick person.
Since November, we have had two feet of snow. Pin It
