School started two hours late today, let out an hour early. My 4-wheel drive SUV made it half-way down my quarter-mile lane before the snow proved too deep. My Dad pulled me out with the tractor, and pulled us back in. It’s supposed to start snowing again tonight, with wind. If you want to visit, and you don’t have a snowmobile, you’re going to be walking. We’re stuck.
I’m stuck with this blog, and having trouble getting restarted. There is a reason I post every week, and it’s not because of popular demand. It’s how I’m wired. I like starting every day with chores.
And so, I’m publicly announcing my intention to post every week, even though I still feel stuck.
I think this blog works best when I’m answering a question. Some questions I want to answer:
How much wood does my outdoor wood boiler use?
How much fuel does my farm use?
What is the feed efficiency of my hogs from 250 to 300 lbs.?
Why can hogs digest acorns without processing?
How long did the “wild west” last? Side note: I think a major contributor to the wild west was post-traumatic stress disorder from the civil war veterans.
Another thing I want to look at more closely is how a square foot of land changes throughout the year. I think I know, but forcing myself to look every week, and take a picture, may prove eye-opening.
Until next week, stay warm.
