Snow removal is no task for the faint of heart on the prairie.
Meet Tractor Oliver.
He lives at our neighbor’s house and has been the most reliable snow removal tractor on the prairie.
But sometimes there is just so much snow that it makes us cry. Especially when the snow won’t stop falling in the month of March. Yesterday Oliver called on his newest prairie companion and snow removal helper.
Meet Bob(cat), fresh off the assembly line from Gwinner, North Dakota, straight east of our prairie home. He is practically a local and he got right to work.
Unfortunately, Bob thought the best place to pile snow is right where my garden lies buried on the frozen tundra. My garden dreams seem very distant and bleak at times.
Bob and Oliver had some fans yesterday cheering them on from the sidelines.
One fan decided to give Bob a spin herself along with Bob’s supervisor.
She found a way with the snow removal supervisor to pile more snow onto the garden area.
Hopefully in a couple months Bob’s bucket will be moving dirt and maybe some manure into that garden of mine and the snow will be a distant memory.
For now, we are thankful for our most trusty loyal friend Tractor Oliver and his new found companion Bob(cat).
My new blog header designed by my dear sister is a figment of the prairie. The tulips were in full bloom during a visit I had to the World Ag Expo in Tulare, CA in February. My sister put a tulips shot and another mud stomping photo of Miss E from last together in the header. She knows I dream of tulips on the prairie.
To keep my sanity on the frozen prairie, you non-snowed in readers, share a favorite spring happening.
Do you have trees budding? In full bloom? Tulips?

Supposed to be another nice day in Nor cal with 68 and mostly sunny…Whoop!
When you asked if anyone had trees blooming, I linked in my red bud post from today – just for you! Sorry about that poor garden plot!!!

sigh…sorry, but i’m in the same boat as you, but without as much snow. My garden seems like a far away dream too. The sun is shining bright today though! That makes the cold wind a bit easier to bear.
Spring will be here soon! Let’s just hang in there!

Hello, I found you through a WW hop, and am now following. I’m looking forward to reading more on your blog as I have a fascination with farms. 🙂
I live on the west coast and have just started my spring garden. I’m hoping to post some picture soon.
Have a great day!
My word if we got that much snow down here in Atlanta people would literally pass out. 6 inches of snow shut down the city (honestly) right before MLK day in January for almost a week.
Hope your garden is green and growing soon. 😀
I cannot imagine all of that snow!
The Wife of a Dairyman says
I really hope you guys thaw out soon and get that garden going!
I love the Oliver! Great tractors.
That snow is ridiculous…it’s March…eeeeek!! I’m ready for spring that is for sure.
love the new building in the background. Wouldn’t it be fun to have an old fashion barn dance in it.
