Dear Mother Nature

....are you on CRACK?

I just saw your 10 day forecast? While I think it is great that you want to reward everyone with a lil' heatwave after the brutal, frigid temps you have made us endure, I'd like to remind you what these crazy warm-up's do for those of us on the farms.

1.) MUD
a.) Muddy Pastures
a1.) Horses have to stay in or sacrafice their summer grass

a.) Wet Stalls
b.) Wet Barn Floors
i.e. Pain in MY REAR :)

While I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness, as this well help fill the back cistern some with all the melting snow, I'd appreciate it more if you could either slow down on the drastic warm ups, or install french drains throughout my whole property and build the horses an indoor arena while you are at it!

Thanks much!
