Falling snow, like the ever quiet steps of the cat, can hardly be heard as it dances joyfully to the ground. It quiets the world in it’s ‘hushful’ way. Everything seems under the cover of a snowfall. But it is not all under cover.
So, for fun on this cold winter day, see if you can tell what the snow is revealing to those who take the time to look! Answers at the end of blog.
- Dog prints (in the header of this blog).
- Feed bucket (set it down to open gate).
- Cow imprint.
- Chicken imprint.
- Farmer’s boots.
- Bird imprints at bird feeder.
- Cat prints on rocks.
- Mystery!! Saw these on the frozen pond and have no idea! Any guesses?
Snow makes farm work laborious and in some areas dangerous. That is a given. Job description of farmer for many places would be incomplete without snow in it. Though many would not complain of being ‘fair weather farmers’, the cold is taken in stride. Just as is all the weather God gives we farmers. Reminds this PFO (Primary Farm Operator) of the little poem read many years ago to this once house-full of little children:
Whether the weather be fine
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold
Or whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not.
We farmers are rather philosophical about it!
Know the farmer. Know the farm.
Homemade is always best.
