Getting ready for a dry year

Snow drift in view from the back yard in January 2017. Take a look below to see the amount of snow we've had in January 2018.

Both of these photos were taken from the same spot in the back of our yard in southeast Saskatchewan in January. The one above is from 2017, the one below is from 2018. While that huge 2017 snow pile was a result of a lot of drifting and didn’t leave as much moisture in the fields as you’d expect, things were definitely a lot less dry last winter. We’re hoping for some more snow or rain before seeding season.
