The Incredible Slog Through An Oregon Winter-Part One

Ever wonder why they’re called “Muck Boots?”  Just look at the above picture and I think you’ll see why.  There’s more than mud swirling around in that horse pasture soup!

Up until about ten days ago, things had been unusually dry on the farm for an Oregon winter.   But now our winter rains have arrived!  Check out this video Bob captured with his cell phone.  The ground is so saturated that whenever it rains hard, the water gushes up out of the gopher holes in our pastures and vineyard.  We’ve named these little gushers “Gopher Geysers.”
