To me, there aren't many better feelings than knowing that you have your hay supply safely stashed and ready to feed in the months ahead.
Of course, to Ed and his friend Dennis (shown here), it must have been a fairly good feeling to be unloading and stacking the last of it during ?sudden cold front instead of on a hot day.
On Sunday, when Ed backed this flatbed load up the barn door, it was 97 degrees. A brewing thunderstorm kept him from unloading it, so he tarped it for Monday--when the high turned out to be 58! (Note the brooding clouds.)
With this gigantic annual summer chore accomplished (have I mentioned how much I love my darling husband?), ?summer seems that much sweeter.
(That is, if it manages to return!)
