Beau has about had it with The Never-Ending Winter of ’18. The latest challenge: calving heifers in a knee-deep, freezing mix of snow, ice, runoff, and mud.
He’s uttered a couple good isms lately that kinda sum up how over this he is. Both were delivered with a heavily sarcastic accent.
- “Oh, look, it’s the ninety-ninth day of January!”
- “I’ve lost the will to tame Montana.”
The weathermen say the county we live in has received 117″ of snow so far this winter, and everybody has been watching in anxious anticipation of today’s forecast. More snowfall is predicted; depending on which website you check and what time of day you look at the forecast, the amounts expected range from 2″ to 13″.
Monday here was partly sunny. Tuesday was mostly sunny. Yesterday it rained. And today we’re expecting snow.
So the guys have been joking that Monday was spring, Tuesday was summer, yesterday was fall, and today we’re starting the winter of ’18-’19.
Yep, it’s been that dreadful… makes you think perpetual winter might be the new normal!
