    If any of you guys were in Nebraska and wishing for snow, we farmers on the eastern side of the state would gladly nail your collective butts to the first vacant cross!

    Wish some of you could have been up here yesterday, when my brother and I were trying to chip those 185#/side tractor chains out of the ice and frozen dirt/gravel mix and get them mounted.

    We're looking at another 6-12" wind driven blast next Tuesday. Do any of you even know what it's like, trying to get half of your next year's income in the bin and out of the elements?

    Just like ol' Curly said, simply....."City Folk"!!!

    LOL the prophets of the airwaves have spoken..."they" say we are going to get 6" of snow here...not sure if we will though. Chances are I will wake up tomorrow AM to find either a foot of snow or none at all.

    It's pretty clear out there right now...no clouds or nuttin.

    (You can tell I don't put much stock in weather forecasters:rolleyes:)

    The storm may just graze us here in Maine....and that is a good thing. :)

    For all of you getting pounded right now stay safe, don't drive, and build a few snowmen! And post the pics tomorrow of course.

    Any other time I'd rejoice just like the doctor. But, I'm leaving Dubuque Ia in the morning headed home to East Tennessee. Have about 4 inches at home and the power is out. Just hope the roads are relatively clear.....

    Every choice has it's trade-offs. Although what you are talking about would be tufff. I know some NC farm boys, from down east. To hear them "poor mouth", you'd feel sorry for them. But I don't live on 500/1000 acres with turkey, bear, ponds, deer, dozens of tractors, 4x4's, 4-wheelers, etc...:D

    Bad timing, Ruhamey! Keep low, keep slow and get there late...but get there!

    To sympathize, or empathize means to be able to put yourself in another man's boots. I have one attitude about winter storms when the power grid's up, I'm sippin' a cold one and watching the weather channel on the 42" LCD.
    I have a whole 'nuther attitude when I'm out in a 20-below wind chill, swinging a chainsaw and trying to get my rig off a mountain through 2 feet of snow.
    I'm trying to maintain my composure here. Whether Wolfy's one of the guys who puts corn in that can you just opened for supper, or feeds it to your car, what guys like him go through so the rest of us can be comfortable ought to be appreciated. Nuff sed......

    Out of that list of attributes that you've listed there, Kayjunman 1........we have ONE. Deer are a major part of our dealings with each year's problems. They eat ALL of the 12 end-rows or headlands. Wish they would quit there, but they don't.

    The two that I take each year and the the two that my buddy/mechanic take are a drop in the proverbial bucket. I allow hunting on my ground, as long as the "guests" take does or non-antlered deer. Kids, especially are welcome.......if they are supervised or "mentored". Gawdam.....I HATE that term. Where did that come from?

    He might have been talking about a sled to haul the corn.
    What's the plan for getting it from the field to the crib? I've never seen a corn popsicle before....

    I've got some funny stuff to tell you guys about "farming" in this day and age.

    I just got done picking my very modest family-owned farm that my brother and I manage and we are more than "greatful" for our bounty and will be giving to those in need. No brag, just fact.

    We try to will 10% to those that deserve it! It's hard to do....I know we do more for those that DON'T deserve it than those that DO!!
