Getting Tired Of This Wet Weather

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

What is the deal with all the wet weather this winter? I have a field to disk up and potatoes to plant. If I were to put the tractor in the field with all this rain, the tractor would sink up to its axles. Then there are the small oak trees that I need to cut and split for firewood.

The front yard is like a mud bog. Walking from the truck to the house is almost like walking through a march.

The winter of 2017 – 2018 has been one for the record books. Unusually cold weather, wet, and a flu epidemic. Replace the flu with the Black Death, and the winter of 2017 – 2018 would sound like something from a history book.

Here in southeast Texas we had snow twice, and back to back night of 18 degrees. That may not sound like much, but for around here it is strange. The last time I remember anything like this was back in 1989.
