A couple of weeks ago when I was buying pet food at a local store, I decided to pick up a pair of high rubber boots. I recalled that last year the store was sold out of boots by the time the snow melted and I figured that this time I’d buy them early and be better prepared.
I’m feeling pretty good about my foresight because I’ll be donning those boots this week. Rains during the past few days have turned part of our farm yard into a pond. I need to get through the water to reach the barn, so the boots will be called into duty. They’ll also come in handy when I feed the horses. Their corral also has turned into a muddy mess this week.
Because it’s still early March, I have a feeling it will get wetter before it gets drier. The boots, which reach, just below my knees, will keep my feet dry as I slog through the farm yard doing my chores. Hopefully, the rains will cease so I don’t also have to use the boots when I’m washing clothes in the basement.
