To my cousins in the south of here I live in the city . . . . but we are suburban rural. I have many amenities nearby but yet tonight in this early December winter night they are picking corn. The field to the west is tonight the field to the east is still standing. The dog barks at the corn picker machine. I like to hear it but it is to cold for the windows to be open like in the spring when they are planting. Last week they were harvesting beans on the way into the kids schools and the road was white out or "bean out" conditions. The Chaff made it very hard to see. We also know we are rural when the manure spreader is making its rounds!! PEE U
Our December sky does not look like this picture, it is gray dark and no sun.
