Yeah, I give up trying to build a shelter for the mallards, they never use them.

I went to the farm yesterday, parked in the neighbors drive way and walked in.  Plowed for about an hour and got a 1/3 of a mile opened up...have I told you how nice it is to have a heated cab on a tractor...

...looking from the barn up to the bend in the gravel road.

Back of barn looking to woods/swamp...poor grape vines.

Looking from front of barn...part of the orchard to left and the house will be to the far right across the stream.

I plugged in the diesel for a little over an hour, it turned over the first time, but it was a rough warm up for about 5 minutes.

Ya know, Everyone knew this was coming. There needs to be some sense about just shutting things down.

Spring is almost here!

It is, that is what I keep telling myself anyways! Just looked at the extended forecast, 40's for the next 2 weeks, but of course a major storm from the 12th-14th, not sure how accurate that is going to be this far out
