Farming & Polar Vortex
As the sun set here on the farm this Tuesday night you can feel the cold sitting in, went out with the boys to make sure the animals have plenty of straw and all the shelters are accessible. I even open up the hay barn so our muscovy ducks which free range all year long can get out of the on coming extreme negative degree windshield coming Wednesday. The schools have shut down and most business, even the "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night, stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." USPS is cancelling mail carrying. They are saying that just 10 minutes out their on uncovered skin can cause frostbite, But for us Farmers we know we have to adventure out there to care for the things we love and worked for. We cann't call in or cancel work for the day it has to be done.
