I bet the friendly farmers is getting paid.
Upholland, what is happening? These pics make me feel glad for the weather we have right now,in Ontario!
This winter is going on and on.Like the one in 1947/48. Good pic,Jamie.
wot's all that white stuff ? we don't have owt like thar where I live ?
What a nice farmer.....a helping hand in time of need.....lovely pic Jamie.....cheers!!!
it's a worrying time for those farmers with new lambs in the fields
I remember '47-'48 too, but as a child, it was with more fondness than I would think of it now! However,I do still bear the scar from a very nasty scrape on my knee which happened when I fell on frozen gravel!
Some farmers volunteer to clear the snow.
Some farmers have contracts to clear the snow.
I fail to see how you can tell from the photograph, which is the case here.
What is the matter with AP and Mick for heavens sake ???
Friendly farmer,grumpy farmer....paid or unpaid they are helping people who need help !!!
Fantastic photo Jamie .Well done.Nice and colourful too.
Just pointing out that it might not be a friendly farmer who is helping the locals to dig their way.
It might be one of the farmers who get paid to do it.
I pushed a van last weekend that was stuck in snow and all I got was slush up my pants leg.
The snow is still piled high along the sides of this road.
Hall Lane, Hindley was totally blocked a few days ago. There were also massive drifts in parts of Westhoughton. I've not seen the like since the early 1950s.
Especially as its March going into April!
I was up Riving yesterday and the road to Belmont was still closed of with thick snow.
And this morning I had to carry my bike over big snow drifts down Standish Wood Lane, it was like being on the foothills of Mount Everest.
Why the farmer bashing? I commented on this earlier in the year! My husband and son are farmers and honestly most farmers are willing to help out and clear snow or pull peoples cars out of ditches if they skid. And people are grateful and say thank you. If AP and Mick are ever in snowy trouble, we will help. No grudges, honest.
