Are we having fun yet!!!

Postby Northern Rancher » Fri Apr 29, 2005 1:25 pm

It's -5 here today with snow and wind howling out of the north-found a drowned cow in a big dugout yesterday so waited for the wind to push her to one end. Had to wade out up to my chest this morning and get a rope on her then tow her into shallow enough water to reach her with the tractor. It was a bit chilly-when I took my chest waders off it looked like I was trying to smuggle olives lol. CAN'T WAIT FOR SPRING!!!!!

I feel for you guys up there. It was 80 here today with bright sun but has been a weird year all around. I usually have hay in the barn by now and it's too cool and too wet to cut!
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

It has been cold here in Alberta the last few days , but we have lots of moisture.More than we have had in a few years. Things are looking good for a change.

Well I think I'm the most northern person on this board (correct me if I'm wrong)... Only +7 today, but the grass and leaves are green. Mid twenties earlier in the week. It's good to be in God's country 8)

That's one part of the country that I want to see some day. 30 years ago I thought about going up that way to see if one could still homestead there. Don't think I'd do it anymore if it was allowed, but the North-West still pulls, for some reason.
