Right, you think I am making a joke, but we really did plow our barn roof today. One massive snow drift formed right between our two barn roofs and Dad was concerned the roof might collapse. Dad and I quickly attached a makeshift wooden board plow onto the lift and with the help of my uncle Nelson, cleaned off a bunch of the snow.
One thing you learn in farming is that jerry rigging things is a way of life. Any wooden plank, iron pole or concrete block can be used for 20 different purposes. I guess farming is the true birthplace of the repurpose movement. Farmers have been repurposing things around their farms for years!
