Unpredictable March

  March is a winter trail in GriggsDakota.
A snowy month. 
Since Winter has been mostly snow free, 
This March is pure and fresh. 
Farmer Fred enjoys the opportunity to jump in the tractor. 
And push the snow around. 
Pushed up piles of fresh snow are unusual for March. GriggsDakota is a place where snow piles often begin in November and melt in April. This year has given us a break. 
 The sun is strong on the days that it peeks through the bluster.
Buds are forming on the frosty branches with the optimism of long experience.
Spring will come, eventually, but perhaps not in March. 
March may bring one storm after another. 
So we wait.
You just never know about March in GriggsDakota.
