Out In The Woods On A Snowy Evening.


Ok, I sort of was inspired by the Robert Frost poem, Stopping by woods on a snowy evening" the other day when I shot some of this video. It looks nice but means lots of shoveling, staggering through deep snow and spinning wheels on tractors trying to carry hay bales out to the cattle feeders. I may yet have to install the snow blower this winter.
I can't believe my luck getting 3 semis loads of grain hauled out on Tuesday, just 24 hours before this new snow fell. There wasn't a lot of snow around that day but being mild it was very slippery and the big truck needed a pull at one point to get going. That farm is pretty much cleaned up now so I should not have to push any more snow there. But never say never.
Highways are reported to be a combination of frozen rain, packed snow and dangerous driving. My old 2 wheel drive pickup has summer tread tires and likely won't get past the doors of the garage before getting stuck. My 4 WD has developed a gas tank leak and I don't want to push my luck too far driving it but may have to at some point. At least I am not dealing with mud and flooding like Budde Shepherd so I will be thankful for that.

  1. Ralph! Do you have enough mice for all those cats? :-)

  2. Ralph! How do you manage to hold that camera so steady? If I take one step, my video is all over the place.
    You have two more cats than we do. Ours will all come to greet, just as yours do, but it's not because they're looking for food. Every one of them expects a cuddle and a few kind words. And I suppose they *hope* for a little something besides the usual dry kibble, as often they get table scraps or something left over from a recently butchered beast.
    I really like your videos. They are very much "just like home," and I don't see enough of that around the internet.

  3. The old panasonic does pretty well with it's five year old steady cam technology most of the time. My cats get a steady diet of dry "Harmonie" cat food and micro wave baked potatoes and seem to thrive on it. They won't give me the time of day unless I have food for them though, the ungrateful critters.
