That's zero of course. We haven't had a winter like that for a long time. The cattle were grateful. They didn't freeze. And that's all the thanks I needed. Have you ever risen at mid- night, slipped into your knee-high boots and tramped the snowy path to the barn to check if any new lambs have been born in the past hour? I have. My reward far outshone any interruption in my sleep. Turning back toward the house I looked at the sky and there in all its beauty was the Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis. Shim- mering, ever changing, beautiful colors beyond description, this light show seemed planned just for me. I enjoy a snowy field covered in icy diamonds. I see beauty in frosted .trees. Even weeds become artistic wonders when a winter sun lights their tiny candles. I wonder, will we have enough moisture thissummer? Scoffers always remind me of the abun- dant rain that fell over the winter months. I remember some of that. In the Edwalt area it was tumbling along like a river in the ditches, running away. The frozen fields could not contain it. There was no snow to slow the water's flow or to blanket the crops, protecting them from the cold. Somebody is yelling in my ear, "Well, if you like it so well, go to Alaska!" I'd love to. Some day. Want to come along? Maybe I'll invite Currier and Ives, "Hey, fellas, let's get some really good pictures and show the folks back home."
