This is Today, April 19

This is today as I look out my windows. It has snowed constantly since ten A.M. yesterday morning. You get used to Spring snow storms when you grow up on the Prairies. Indeed I think they can some of the most fierce. While largely removed from farming these days I have had the experience of being there. I know that calving has just occurred. Calves can be most susceptible to weather resulting in losses.

That said, while I can expect these storms it don't mean that I like them. I have a number of things that need to be done today outside of the house: a haircut; need to buy a gift for my niece; grocery shopping, etc. all this snow and wind is going to make it difficult.
