    I agree with Angel - character! Though I sometimes long for a lack of ice, snow, and freezing weather.

    Warm mild winters keep you looking younger longer

    I carried water about 125 yards the first two winters. I would actually do shoulder shrudges and try to curl the buckets as I carry them. Lol After a while that got pretty old.

    I finally rented a mini back hoe and dug a trench from the house to the barn and put two hydrants in. I also added a place to put in a fountain. I hope to buy a fountain and hook it up in 2009.

    For now, I run a hose from the barn to the tank. After I fill the tank, I walk uphill with the hose and blow it out before I roll it up. I also use a tank heater since it gets pretty cold in Minnesota in the winter.
