It rained last night! I am so thankful… I just knew the late night rain dance would prove effective.
Because the rain was needed. It has been a week of wind, wind, wind. I’ve counted, and I believe all the animals are still here… but it was close for a little while.
This once grass-covered lawn is now strewn with silage, nutritious food for the cows during winter. Silage has a lovely odor, but bland in taste. Or so I’m told. By the cows.
One thing about South Dakota, we are not lacking wild, hair tangling wind, especially this side of the Missouri River.
Thankfully, this wind has calmed, the sky released rain, and bruised apples remain an offering.
And I’ve got coffee to drink.
