Natural Windbreaks

On the drive to North Gower, we were wondering why so many fields had half a dozen rows of corn left standing parallel to the road.

Then we reached a point where the wind had blown the snow across the fields, and discovered the corn stalks were a natural windbreak.

Husband rolled his eyes that I wanted to photograph the snow,

but I had never seen anything like this before.

Can you imagine this much snow blowing across the roads during a storm?

I've seen wooden snow barriers but never thought to question the corn left at the edges of the fields! What a great idea. Cheaper too.

I'm so glad you stopped to take pictures. Hope you didn't get too cold! :=}

I'm so glad he agreed to stop and let you photograph. I had no idea the leftovers could collect so much snow. So interesting!

Hi! My husband just informed me that one shouldn't be using more than 90% of their computer memory, and that I only have about 2% left, so I need to clean up my email and iphoto.

So, I started with June's emails I hadn't deleted, and am now in July. I came across a very nice comment you made on a SkyWatch post of mine, so I thought I'd let myself get sidetracked a bit and say, "hi".

I had to laugh about your husband rolling his eyes at your snow photo taking. Well, they turned out great! I like the photos of your dogs on your most recent post, too.
