Today started out crisp with a low of 27 degrees but quickly warmed to a high of 45. Dad fed the cattle early before the ground became slick and muddy. He cut firewood in the afternoon as much of the supply was burned during the long cold stretch.
Mom cleaned house and worked on taxes until the day warmed up; then she worked outside cleaning front yard and the rain gutters.
