These days one of our favorite sights, along with blue skies and white clouds is liquid water. With it, chores are completed fairly quickly in the morning and farmers can tend to other things.

Without it water must be hauled to the livestock. At 8 pounds to the gallon this job becomes a challenging one, and can take the better part of a very tiring day.

For now there is a portion of each day where everything thaws and water flows. In the next few months this will not be true, so hauling in the bitter cold and relentless wind commences. The water always splashes out of the bucket and onto clothing, gloves, boots...there is no avoiding it. Today farmers rejoice in liquid assets.
