- How’s this for an example of the rural-urban divide?
An Ormondville farmer didn’t let the snow stop him from working on the farm during the inclement weather on July 13, 2017.
It’s the caption for a photo of a farmer feeding out in the snow.
As the Facebook friend whose post alerted me to it asked:
. . . what was he gonna do stay inside and leave his stock without feed? go away to the islands on a holiday? Call the cattle and tell them that s/he wasn’t coming in today?
How could someone not know that farmers, like those in quite a few other occupations, not only continue to work in inclement weather, they have to work harder and often not in spite of it but because of it?
