The Winter of 2013-2014 was relentlessly harsh. By the end of February, we were ready to have it end. It continued well into April. Luckily, we are not able to see the future. Optimism allows us to hope and we did eventually see an end to Winter.
The 2014 February Farmer Fred Award Runner-Up is presented to:
Finally Farewell to February
Originally published on February 28, 2014
Fresh flowers bid February fond farewell.
You are finished freezing and fretting
Though the freezing isn't finished,
And fretting isn't final,
February is finally finished
Freezing and fussing.
And Feasting, gone forever.
February brought Valentines for friends and family.
Fantasy fascinated the Farm Inspector.
No freezing or fighting with fantastic friends and family.
Jeff Foxworthy famously fools about fashioning a hole through two feet of ice, then waiting for food to swim by.
Very Funny, Foxworthy, but
Folks, including the Farm Inspector and her Family, Fish in February.
