So the ice persisted through yesterday with a THUNDERSTORM and subsequent downpour, and we are melting. I figure by Wednesday the flooding will be done and the trails will be accessible... since I'm working 12 hours straight and doing it again on Thursday. That has been the trend for the past couple of weeks. I get a weekend and it plunges to a deep freeze, or an ice storm, or a soaker, or, or, or...I just don't do cold and wet, or flooded, or dangerous. Life is short, no sense making it shorter. There is endurance tough, and then...there is stupid.
LSEGH moved manure mountain yesterday with the tractor. We have seeded the new manure mountain wanna be as of this morning. Hard to believe how much manure three horses make in eight or ten hours! I take about a wheelbarrow load out of stalls each morning. What do you do with your manure mountain? Ours rots down for the garden eventually.
Have a great week!
