This is a winter view of our front yard seen from the house as the sun is rising. I take in this sight every day. At this time of year I look over the fields to see how much the snow has grown overnight. Then I decide whether or not it’s necessary to run the snowblower to dig us out. During the rest of the year I look out over the same space to see how much the grass has grown overnight. Then and I decide if it’s necessary to run the tractor to tame the fields. Lately we’ve caught a break. Not too much snow has been coming all at once and the grass isn’t growing much either. We can just look outside in the early morning and enjoy the view!
