yep - there are many trades that are very lucrative, when it comes to salary. Don't have to have get a BS education to find a job - sometimes those degrees mean absolutely less than the paper they are printed on (when it comes to earning a living). Trade schools and careers offer lots of opportunity.Even better maybe their kids will see that being a tradesman is a great way to make a living.
To get back on track... we still have our snow... the dogs are enjoying it, way more than the humans. I feel for the cattle ranchers around here... I don't know much about caring for livestock, but water has got to be an issue for those living in the Ozarks. Or winter calving......Many of the ranches rely on stock ponds that have been frozen over now for a good 4 days. Bull Shoals Reservoir has frozen over too (Theodosia arm) The first time since the early 80's I believe.
Wayne, you get your water back on yet?
