Cleaning the Shelter Belt

 The brutally cold weather has blown away with the South wind.
 The forecast is for melting snow by the end of the week.
 It is a good time to get out and clean up dead trees in the tree row. 
Trees don't have long lives on the windy plains of GriggsDakota.
They usually die while standing in the shelter belt and remain there until they blow over in a wind. 
The fallen trees that land in the field are a headache during the busy Spring and Summer. We either must stop and move them, or drive around them. 
On a day like this, it is good to get outside and clean them up. 
These logs are useful for firewood. The scraps are tucked safely back in the tree row, away from the path of machinery. 
As December flies by in GriggsDakota.
