Editor's Note: I almost forgot about that cow that had the roof come in on it. I thought for sure she didn't make it but here they are righting her...I believe.
In 1900 I think the cow came in because their is a cold snap coming...And where exactly does all this manure get "drawn to"? I believe Allen is mucking out the barn but where does one put it in the middle of winter? I am too far from my farming roots.
