Ode to Winter Chores

Farm life on a bitter cold winter day By Birgit Stutz You know it’s cold out when… you are wearing so many layers that you can barely move and you are afraid of falling down because you might not be able to get back up on your own. your scarf is frozen to your nose and cheeks. your gloves are stuck to the outside of the water bucket or the metal gate. your eyes are almost froze shut because your eyelashes are frozen. your eyelashes are frozen to your toque. your snot rag freezes rock solid within minutes – if your snot hasn’t frozen in your nose first. your nostrils are frozen shut. your cheeks are so cold it feels like they will crack if you smile. your feet feel like a block of ice. you don’t even attempt to start anything with an engine – unless you have a…
