Sunshine Wind and Snow

We got it all today. Cool and cloudy morning but still looked promising enough to plug in the tractor to finally open my driveway. Sun came out briefly too but by the time I got to the tractor shed it was blowing snow in high winds so I put that idea on hold til afternoon. By afternoon brilliant bursts of sunshine illuminated the blowing and drifting snow. Temp went up above normal but by late afternoon it was headed down into the discomfort zone again so the tractor idea got pushed ahead into tomorrow. I need the driveway open by 1:00 for an appointment but I'm starting to think of cancelling. This has been one crazy winter. Hardly a break between wind storms. Lots of snow for the fields but its being blown off the fields into ditches and yards where it won't do us much good. On the good news side, grains prices are still at crazy high levels and I have some to sell if the weather ever gives me a few days in a row without wind and blowing snow to get it hauled. On the bad side, crop input costs have jumped about as bad as grain prices have gone good. And of course the general unrest in the whole country. Interesting times indeed.
