My barn gloves of four or five years were suddenly missing around the New Year. I looked every place possible in the garage, barn, house, where ever. Today as I was using the hose to de-mud the dog, I found them over the wall and in the mulch, soaking wet, but okay.
We have had about three decently warm days where the snow and ice from January has ALMOST all melted. I guess they have been under the layers and layers of snow all this time. Well, now I have a spare pair for working guests!
