Poor man’s fertilizer

is what I’ve heard a wet snow like this one called. And it’s wet! And I know there are those calving in it who are calling it ano5ther word for fertilizer that starts with a B and has an s in there too!

Must be 6 inches anyway. If you like snow balls or building snowmen, you’d love it. Many other people? Not so much.

Grandsons haven’t quite drove us over the edge of insanity. In reality they have been very good but are cooped up all day as it’s been a keening cold wind out of the southeast. They just go out with me to feed and “supervise”. They must be good at it cuz’ so far we’ve managed to get them all fed. The cows look like wet drowned rats in this stuff. At least it’s not terrible cold. And there is green grass under it and in a couple days when this melts off it’s really going to make the crested wheatgrass pop!

No change in Cindy’s Mom. We sure appreciate all the kind words, thoughts and prayers. Thank you all.

  1. Sitting in a cafe in Newcastle thirty years ago i heard two old, oldtimers say that Spring snows have higher nitrogen content than rain does. Have never seen any science to confirm it, but it surely greens things up fast, innit?

    1. Yup, heard the same thing Larry. Sure seems like the grass is darker green where the snow lays deep. you can always tell where the snowdrifts were the nest summer.

    1. Around here it’s hard to predict. We usually have pretty open grazing if there is anything to graze, by April 15. but I have seen blizzards up until May 15th.We had a killer 3 day one in 97 on the 17 of April. 2 feet of snow and 70 mph winds. We all lost livestock in that one and I hope I never see another like it!

  2. My prayers are with your Mom..I hope she heals well. Bless her heart..that sure is a great deal to go thru. My Aunt Ruth, hopefully, will be heading home from the hospital in Scottsbluff,Wyo. this Thursday, after colon surgery complications. It’s nice to hear your grandsons can count on Grandpa to keep things keeping on. So very important.
