Winter on the farm in my youth could get pretty brutal. Especially when we were thirteen miles from Fairfield. The nearest neighbors were a half mile away. And it was just plain dark, snowy, windy and scary (in no particular order).

These days I live in the city with street lights and snowplows and regular weather forecasts on the tv, radio and computer. And guess what--winter is still a struggle some times.

Thank heavens I am now equipped with my official Fairfield, Iowa black stocking cap (thank you, Bargain Box, of course).

Keep it tuned to "The Feed Store" on Thursdays and Sundays for more heroic tales of winters past and present.
