A major winter storm is becoming more likely Friday night through
Sunday for all of eastern North Dakota...northwest and west
central Minnesota. Snow is expected to develop Friday night and
continue through Sunday. The snow may become heavy at times on
Saturday...and significant accumulations are possible before the
snow tapers off later on Sunday. Northerly winds will also
increase by Sunday...causing blowing and drifting snow.
So much for the January thaw!
My Mom loves facts about things that aren't much important and she got a calendar for Christmas that has lots of stuff like she likes. For instance the scoop on cows:
*While many animals see only in black and white, cows see in color (except red which is the best color, I think).
*Cows navigate by looking at the ground. If one is stuck in a field that's covered in water, she has no idea where she is. (I thought thats what herding dogs were for, to bring them home when they get lost.)
*Because their eyes protrude slightly, cows have panoramic vision, allowing them to see nearly 360 degrees
around. (Some dogs have slightly protruding eyes, do you see this way?)
*Cows don't tear grass out of the ground with their teeth. They wrap their tongue around it and pull. (Roots and all? So its goodbye grass?)
Then this is the best one, in my opinion,
*A study found that cows give 35 percent more milk when listening to Elvis Presley's music!
(Now wouldn't The King just love that?)
I'm on my way to outside with my big rawhide, and I wish you a happy Martin Luther King day today.
By the way, here is a picture of me, and its how I look when my Mom starts out with her FACTS!
