I Love a Rainy Day

I love a rainy day! Especially after the drought we've been experiencing here in Northwest Arkansas. Rain to the farmer is a mixed blessing. Rain means our gardens are watered, our ponds are getting filled, our pastures are nourished, and we can finally burn that brush pile.It also means that ...

Rain and Mud

"Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day." That's an age-old rhyme that every kid learns at some point. During the last few weeks, it's been an ear-worm that I can't get out of my head.I know the farmers need the rain. It's essential to have it for the crops to grow. The livestock need ...

Rain

I ended up not going to one tractor show this year on account of rain. It was a four-day show that I normally attend as a spectator for one day, and it really wasn't raining that much. However in the end, between the light drizzle and a van that was near its death, I decided to miss Boonville ...

Memories of Midwestern Storms

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, Hurrah, Hurrah

Here in Northern California, months of drought brought creek, river and lake water levels to an all-time low. However, good news came with a light rain on Sunday, Feb. 2, and it’s been raining some every day since. While it hasn’t been what my late father-in-law called a ...

I Give Up

People such as I who have come from the relative cleanliness of the city to the relative funkiness of the country eventually come to this conclusion: There’s no way to keep up with chores and also keep the house immaculate. I allow that there may be some among you who are clones of the White ...
