November 23, 2023
I enjoyed Saturday’s spring-like weather and appreciate the rain which followed but I am not looking forward to the colder temperatures and the possibility of snow which conclude the forecast for this week.
That might be different if I had plans to put up ice. There was a time when putting away ice was a regular winter activity.
Recently while reading an issue of the Ruskin Leader published in 1923, I came across a story distributed by the University of Nebraska Extension Service which advised every farm should have an ice house and farmers should be making plans to harvest ice.
