So far, winter is a muddy mess. This photo was taken before we had 3 inches of rain in a day. Middle River by our farm is out of its banks and the main road I take into Des Moines is shut down all week due to Raccoon River flooding. I guess we should be happy the moisture isn't snow, although frozen ground and snow is better for livestock.
Meanwhile, Bob is working on projects in the shop. Here, he and his business partner, Brian, are sanding shelves for the veterinary clinic. The clinic is being remodeled and expanded, a huge job that seems to never end. Here's to a peaceful 2016!
Mowing the grass in Iowa on December 7. Weird. This was the view from my office before the big rains.
